„For no matter what we achieve, if we don't spend the vast majority of our time with people we love and respect, we cannot possibly have a great life.“

—  Jim Collins, buch Good to Great

Good to Great, 2001
Kontext: For no matter what we achieve, if we don't spend the vast majority of our time with people we love and respect, we cannot possibly have a great life. But if we spend the vast majority of our time with people we love and respect – people we really enjoy being on the bus with and who will never disappoint us – then we will almost certainly have a great life, no matter where the bus goes. The people we interviewed from the good-to-great companies clearly loved what they did, largely because they loved who they did it with.
