On being liked

Posted on

I was amused to note, in the context of many of the comments I've received on this blog and on twitter in the last twenty four hours, this quote that I came across by chance on the web:

You know, if you just set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything, wouldn't you, at any time? And you would achieve nothing!

I have quite a lot of sympathy with that, even if not much with the person who said it.
