Frequently used quotes

I find myself quoting other people’s wisdom all the time. For obvious reasons: why try to rephrase something which has already been expressed very eloquently. Similar to my “frequently shared links” post, I wanted to put together a collection of the quotes I use the most. I’ll update this as I find more good ones - here are five to start with:

“Either hold a rock concert, or a ballet; but don’t hold a rock concert and advertise it as a ballet”
Warren Buffet

“To a man with a hammer every problem looks like a nail”
Also known as the law of the instrument. Mark Twain, Buddha and probably many more.

“You can do anything you want but not everything you want”
Ray Dalio

“Addition by subtraction”
Andy Weissman

“Things are completed in the time allocated to complete them”
aka Parkinson’s Law, by Cyril Parkinson
