I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown,
The dream is gone.
I have become comfortably numb.”

“Look for intelligence and judgment and, most critically, a capacity to anticipate, to see around corners. Also look for loyalty, integrity, a high energy drive, a balanced ego and the drive to get things done.”
