The compilation of questions and answers from one of the biggest names of advertising world – Charles Saatchi. I personally love the introduction line “Life’s too long for patience & virtue”.
Here are my top 10 sentences from Be The Worst You Can Be:
1- I do not believe in fate. I do not believe your destiny is controlled by you. I do not believe that you can shape the outcome of your life. People are tossed about in a capricious sea of unknownable, indiscriminate circumstances. Some drown. Some survive. Some thrive.
2- Everything comes to those who wait, but it’s usually been left by those who didn’t.
3- Never, ever, delay any opportunity to derive pleasure, for even a second. As the French say, all things come in moderation, including moderation.
4- Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted.
5- Always remember you are unique and just like everyone else.
6- Since the U.N. was founded in 1945, there have been 148 wars.
7- There are three kinds of people in the world:
- People who make things happen.
- People who watch things happen.
- People who say “What happened?”
8- If you don’t adore yourself unconditionally, why should anyone else? However deeply unappealing you may be, there will be somebody somewhere who finds you wonderful. How else would humankind have kept endlessly renewing itself?
9- Do you believe that men are from mars, and women are from venus?
Men are from Earth. Women are from Earth. Moaning about it won’t change a thing.
10- What’s your usual waking thought in the mornings?
Start the day off with a smile and get it over with it.
