I read The Radical Edge last night and apart from it being a great page-turner (you don’t really expect that from leadership/personal-development type books), there was this really amazing quote by one of the characters (who I think is based on a real person) Agnes Golden:

If you live in this world without attempting to change it, you will have sold a ruby for the price of Spam.

I love that it’s not all high-and-mighty sounding. It’s true, it’s real, it’s plain, yet it’s poetic. Great stuff. I highly recommend the book too. I haven’t read the book before it yet (The Radical Leap), but I’ll be ordering it from Amazon soon.
