I read some interesting and insightful quotes this week. Here are a few of them:
Shatrughan Sinha on why Indian movie stars are getting attracted to politics:
Glamour has limited power, whereas power has unlimited glamour.
This is an enormously influential group of people, and 90 percent of that influence is being spent to gain powers and practices that the world would be better off without.
On the Glass Ceiling (From The Economist)
One of the first women to head a major Japanese company, when asked in 2005 what had changed least in Japanese business in the previous 20 years, said: â€œThe mindset of Japanese gentlemen”.
