“Sometimes one likes foolish people for their folly, better than wise people for their wisdom.”

– Elizabeth Gaskell, British Victorian-Era Novelist

I consider the Quotable Coach posts as serious business, nuggets of wisdom I hope impact your life.

This quote by Elizabeth Gaskell stopped me in my tracks, and caused me to take more detours to a lighter and jovial side of life. It’s caused me to strengthen my funny bone and avoid the osteoporosis of too much sitting on the mountain of wisdom.


How can you embrace the foolishness and folly within yourself and others to strengthen your own funny bone, and live a more complete, fulfilling and happier life?
