Stillness is the Key

Moments ago I started reading the much anticipated book Stillness is the Key by Ryan Holiday.  It is a book that I have anticipated for a long time, being a big fan of Holiday’s past work, Ego is the Enemy.  While I read the book, my goal is to share with the EDGB community some of my favorite snipits.

Today, I start with a quote by B.H. Liddell Hart that was dear to President Kennedy during the Cuban Missle Crisis.

Keep strong if possible, in any case, keep cool. Have unlimited patientce. Never corner an opponent, and always assist him to save face. Put yourself in his shoes, so as to see things through his eyes. Avoid self-rightiousness like the devil, nothing is so self blinding.
