0 – 7 I’m afraid you’re one of life’s loners. Perhaps you’re being too selfish and your life could be more fulfilling if you had more time for others.

Comment on

Express your point of view. Enlarge one quotation into a situation or an example from a real life.

1) Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity. (George S. Patton)

2) People are definitely a company’s greatest asset. It doesn’t make any difference whether the product is cars or cosmetics. A company is only as good as the people it keeps.

(Mary Kay Ash) 2) When a man points a finger at someone else, he should remember that four of his fingers are pointing at himself. (Louis Nizer)
