Winning with people

I checked out John Maxwell's book Winning with People several weeks ago after seeing it in a used bookstore.

What initially caught my eye was this quote from Al Capone: "You can get farther with a kind word and a gun than you can with a kind word alone."
The book makes the point, of course, that that isn't the way. Use a velvet glove, not a hammer, Maxwell says.

I'm making this post however so I'll be able to remember this quote from Samuel Butler: "Friendship is like money, easier made than kept."

Easier made than kept. Sigh.
