Today's #WordsOfWisdom :

Trying it differently - let me know if you prefer it this way...

Well that little survey last night produced all shades of opinion from strongly no relaxation for Christmas to we may as well anyhow because people will take no notice!
There is no right or wrong answer to the question but it does just illustrate how hard it is for our Government to make the right decision at the right time. I was struck by the appeal of the Bishop of Paisley describing relaxation of some of the rules as a "Christmas cease fire"
He compared it to the cease fire on the western front in the first world war when troops cautiously met up in no man's land for a game of football and to exchange Christmas greetings, only to continue the fighting the next day.

Nothing will ever beat Bernie Mac (RIP) telling an incredibly hostile audience “I ain’t scared of you MFs.”

Another @NYUAbuDhabi class visit with @RealSeunKuti: peopleusually look for external validation before they accept an artist. Image
Earlier in my career I used to look for external validation. How will people accept my music? ... now I make sure that I’ve done my best, achieved the concept I had in my head. Not compromised myself.
Telling a story about Richard Pryor and @RealSeunKuti gets caught up trying to explain to @NYUAbuDhabi who he is, and then telling an intense story about him being misunderstood early in his career.
