They are the willing and skilled instruments of the gods and goddesses they serve." - Steven Pressfield

This listening is that which will facilitate the patient's telling of his tale, the telling that can set him free. (5)" - Sheldon B. Kopp

Work is underway to select the go forward smartphone brand." - Stephen Elop

They are the willing and skilled instruments of the gods and goddesses they serve." - Steven Pressfield

I gave myself permission to turn all of that off, and to lose myself in work." - Truong Tran
