Marcelo in the Real World Power Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Chapter.Paragraph)

Quote #1

"The corporate world has its rules. The law firm has its rules…The real world as a whole has its rules. The rules deal with behaviors and the way to do things in order to be successful." (3.40)

If following the rules leads to success, success leads to money, and money leads to power, is it worth sacrificing independent thought and personal integrity to follow them?

Quote #2

"Right. Well, when I'm around Wendell, I feel like that CD would if it could feel." (9.67)

Sometimes just the way you look at someone can take away their power.

Quote #3

"Vidromek wants me to destroy you, really. They want me to drive you into the ground with discovery and delays until you regret ever taking this on." (10.46)

To plan from the outset to drive someone crazy with evasion and delays may be effective, but it's also straight-up, premeditated evil.
