If you want to talk to somebody honestly, as a human being, ask him about his kids. Find out what his dreams are - just to find out, for no other reason. Because as soon as you lay your hands on a conversation to steer it, it's not a conversation anymore; it's a pitch. - from The Big Kahuna via Shok the German
Cluetrainers: Read that sentence again. Lately, I'm thinking I'm not so sure that markets are conversations. But a few more actual conversations in the world - especially to get to know people, period, and their dreams whether they are in a blue state, a red state or way across the world - well, we could use a bit more of that.
