Mr Bhatti's Pearls of Wisdom

Oh, the beauty of the Infinite Wisdom of Senior Managers... Everyday our Managing Director, Salman Bhatti, enlightens us with his ever so significant and serious quotes, which never fail to make our days more fruitful. Today I am delighted to share some of his classic “Pearls of Wisdom” with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Deep thoughts
“Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday”.
“’Smile’, they said, ‘life could be worse’. I did, and it was…”
“The wisdom of the wise is a large degree of common sense”.

About Work
“Why is there so much month left at the end of the salary?”
“Isn’t it heavenly to do nothing and rest afterwards?”
“I like work; I can sit and stare at it for hours”

Mundane reflections
“A good day is when all the wheels on your shopping trolley go in the same direction”.

Men and women
“God made beautiful women – and then they turned into wives”.
“A woman changes a lot after marriage, especially her husband.”
“A bachelor is someone who comes to work from a different direction every morning”.

“Expert: someone who has stopped learning”.
“Never learn to do anything. If you don’t learn you will always find someone else to do it for you”.

Growing old
“Middle age is when your broad mind and narrow waist change places”.
“Wrinkles are hereditary – parents get them from their children”.

On Business
“The trouble with opportunity is that it looks so much bigger going than coming”.
“Diplomacy: the art of saying things in such a way the no one knows exactly what you mean”.

And finally, on the complications of communication
“I know you believe you understand what you think I just said. But if hope you realise that what you just heard is not what I meant!”

What would we do without such wonderful remarks?

PS: since Melanie talked about the 50th anniversary of Charles Darwin's 'The Origin of Species' on our last post, I just thought it was worth mentioning that today is his birthday.
