Yesterday I wrote about awareness and how it is important for managers to be aware of their surroundings in order to to reach a human connection. Then I encountered the next two quotes:
Whoever knows essentially his own nature, can know also that of other men and can penetrate into the nature of beings. He can collaborate in the transformation and the progress of Heaven and earth (Confucian teaching).
How can the soul, which misunderstands itself, have a sure idea of other creatures? (Seneca).
Exactly what I said. Just shorter and more to the point.
