What’s Inside?

Tags : 

What’s inside the mysterious envelope? What’s in the box? What’s behind the shiny paper and colorful bow? It may not be the curiosity that gets to us, it may be the feeling of value based on the presentation. A social media profile without a picture, a book by its cover, and even a picture without

Say Something

Tags : 

“I didn’t like what I heard, but I didn’t say anything.” “I wasn’t sure I agreed, but I thought it was best to keep quiet.” “Everyone in the group was already on board; I didn’t want to be the only one to disagree.” When you roll with it, go with the flow, or think you’ve

Know Everything

Tags : 

Christopher Columbus didn’t know everything, but he was prepared. Perhaps to his crew, he knew everything.
