“The team must consist of three sorts of specialists, otherwise the revolution, whether in politics or the arts or the sciences or whatever, is sure to fail.
The rarest of these specialists is an authentic genius – a person capable of having seemingly good ideas not in in general circulation.
A genius working alone is invariably ignored as a lunatic.
The second sort of specialist is a lot easier to find; a highly intelligent citizen in good standing in his or her community, who understands and admires the fresh ideas of the genius, and who testifies that the genius is far from mad.
A person like this working alone can only yearn loud for changes, but fail to say what theirs shaped should be.
The third sort of specialist is a person who can explain everything, no matter how complicated, to the satisfaction of most people, no matter how stupid or pigheaded they may be. He will say almost anything in order to be interesting and exciting.
Working alone, depending solely on his own shallow ideas, he would be regarded as being as full of shit as a Christmas turkey.”” —Kurt Vonnegut on radical change, from Bluebeard

1. Avoid fried meats which angry up the blood.
2. If you stomach disputes, lie down and pacify it with cool thoughts.
3. Keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move.
4. Go very light on the vices, such as carrying on in society. The social ramble ain’t restful.
5. Avoid running at all times.
6. Don’t look back. Something might be gaining on you.
