Let me share some nice quotes about handling a crisis.
A leader or a man of action in a crisis almost always acts subconsciously and then thinks of the reasons for his action.
– Jawaharlal Nehru
Any idiot can face a crisis – it’s day to day living that wears you out.
– Anton Chekhov
Close scrutiny will show that most “crisis situations” are opportunities to either advance, or stay where you are.
– Maxwell Maltz
I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.
– Abraham Lincoln
Let’s define reality and give lots of hope, especially to the needy and the weary, not only in Japan but also everywhere.
In a crisis, you will see the best and worst among people. The best situation sees heroism; the worst sees irresponsibility. Case in point: how else can you define and explain the Twitter rumors spread by some of our tactless fellows here in the islands.
Always remember in a crisis, reputations are made or broken.
