Quote by George Meredith
Caricature is rough truth.
This quote suggests that caricature, which exaggerates and distorts certain features or characteristics of a subject, manages to capture a certain essence of truth. Despite its rough and exaggerated depiction, caricature unveils underlying realities and truths that may not be immediately apparent in a more realistic portrayal. By emphasizing and highlighting specific traits, caricature is able to bring attention to certain truths about the subject, offering a distilled version of reality that may provoke amusement, critique, or deeper understanding.
Change is healthy and useful. It has to be fought for most of the time. It's not inevitable. It takes real leadership and real effort. But I think it's really important not to take yourself too seriously. Dwight Eisenhower used to have a rule that you should always take your job seriously but not yourself.
