I couldn’t have said it any better, and that makes me so angry

Damn that Charles Schwab. schwabcharles

In commenting on how to increase employee productivity, he once said:

"The way to get things done is to stimulate competition. I do not mean in a sordid, money-getting way, but in the desire to excel."

These two sentences sum up the essence of my teaching philosophy.

That’s exactly what I do.

And Schwab’s words sound so good, too.  So clear and succinct.

I’m so jealous.

My quest for inclusion into Bartlett's Book of Familiar Quotations continues, but it will likely not include anything as good as Schwab’s two sentence miracle.
