wisdom, here.

So… yes, I am spending my Thursday evening reading Warren Buffet’s biography (haven’t started my next book club selection).  Nerd, I know.  But I like this quote, so I have to share.

The big question about how people behave is whether they’ve got an Inner Scoreboard or an Outer Scoreboard.  It helps if you can be satisfied with an Inner Scoreboard.  I always pose it this way.  I say: “Lookit.  Would you rather be the world’s greatest lover, but have everyone think you’re the world’s worst lover?  Or would you rather be the world’s worst lover but have everyone think you’re the world’s greatest lover?”  Now, that’s an interesting question.

Note:  he more or less has two wives…  Or, a real wife, and then a woman that lives with him in his real house.  And they are apparently fine with this arrangement.  Hmmm…
