David Rockefeller detailed quote

We now demand the light artillery of the intellect; we need the curt, the condensed, the pointed, the readily diffused -- in place of the verbose, the detailed, the voluminous, the inaccessible.

— Edgar Allan Poe

Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now.
