Compromises seem necessary only because of inappropriate situations. If you’re involved with the right people, the word “sacrifice” shouldn’t even be in your vocabulary.
– Harry Browne, How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World
That Harry Browne quote, funny thing: I remembered it as If you’re involved with the right people, the word compromise shouldn’t even be in your vocabulary. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind that wording, either. Anyhow, trying compromise just makes you realize that whenever you thought you weren’t compromising enough, you were probably compromising too much already. And of course, we know what to think of sacrifice.
