Notable Quotes

  • For most people, rain elicits complaints about gray skies, being wet, etcetera. But it transports me to the cupboard on top of my grandmother's linen closet.
  • Rain is the only data in the conversation. It’s the thoughts that we have about the rain that creates drama, good or bad.
  • If we believe that our manager is not helping us, there is a chance that we will be seeking out evidence. Our brain will look for opportunities to prove that thought wrong regardless of the individual's actions.
