If you want to stop little Johnnie from hitting his sister, you can’t look away one time and scream at him another. You can’t treat his sister differently when she hits him.

Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “People don’t rise from nothing. We do owe something to parentage and patronage. The people who stand before kings may look like they did it all by themselves.

Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “The trick to finding ideas is to convince yourself that everyone and everything has a story to tell. I say trick but what I really mean is challenge, because it’s a very hard thing to do.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Re-reading is much underrated. I’ve read The Spy Who Came in from the Cold once every five years since I was 15. I only started to understand it the third time.”

Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “In a country that never wins anything: in Canada, if one of our athletes so much as makes the final in a World Championship, we declare a national holiday.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “I think overall it’s a disadvantage,” Jeb Bush once said of what it meant for his business career that he was the son of an American president and the brother of an American president and the grandson of a wealthy Wall Street banker and US senator.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “A man employs the full power of the state in his grief and ends up plunging his government into a fruitless and costly experiment. A woman who walks away from the promise of power finds the strength to forgive – and saves her friendship, her marriage, and her sanity. The world is turned upside down. – Chapter 8.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “I’m someone who can provide an intellectual framework, but I can’t tell people who are trying to sell Product X how to do that because I don’t know, and I would be faking it if I attempted to step into that role.”

Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “The deceptions of Ana Montes and Bernie Madoff, the confusion over Amanda Knox, the plights of Graham Spanier and Emily Doe are all evidence of the underlying problem we have in making sense of people we do not know.

Both, however, raise the same question: once we accept our shortcomings, what should we do?”

Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “Contagiousness is an unexpected property of all kinds of things.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “If the two countries went to war and Canada chose to fight unconventionally, history would suggest that you ought to put your money on Canada.”

Eliot’s “Prufrock,” Robert Lowell’s “Skunk Hour,” Robert Frost’s “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” William Carlos Williams’s “Red Wheelbarrow,” Elizabeth Bishop’s “The Fish,” Ezra Pound’s “The River Merchant’s Wife,” Sylvia Plath’s “Daddy,” Pound’s “In a Station of the Metro,” Frost’s “Mending Wall,” Wallace Stevens’s “The Snow Man,” and Williams’s “The Dance.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “It’s a lot like what people do when they are in psychoanalysis: they spend years analyzing their unconscious with the help of a trained therapist until they begin to get a sense of how their mind works. Heylmun and Civille have done the same thing – only they haven’t psychoanalyzed their feelings; they’ve psychoanalyzed their feelings for mayonnaise and Oreo cookies.”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “I should point out that I have a picture of Asbel Kiprop as the screensaver on my phone. Is that embarrassing?”
Malcolm Gladwell Quote: “We fall out of truth-default mode only when the case against our initial assumption becomes definitive. We do not behave, in other words, like sober-minded scientists, slowly gathering evidence of the truth or falsity of something before reaching a conclusion. We do the opposite. We start by believing. And we stop believing only when our doubts and misgivings rise to the point where we can no longer explain them away.”
