From the prolific Wes Fryer. 3rd Dec. On the differences between cooperation and collaboration.
‘Cooperation is when everyone is doing the same thing, we are using everyone’s work. Example: everyone is working on the same task together.
Collaborating is using our own strengths and gifts, like when people build a house together and are doing different things while working towards the same larger goal.’
From the Sunday Herald 7th Dec 08, a headline:
HOW TO LOOK AFTER YOUR GRANDCHILDREN
And I thought: Always good to know about how to look after kids, and guess what? It was a guide to money investment. Silly old me; I just don’t understand childcare do I?
From the wonderful Terry Pratchett (et al in this case), in ‘The Globe’. 2003, P 23
‘A spell is a story about what a person wants to happen, and magic is what turns stories into reality.’
From ABC Radio ‘Life Matters’ 11th December 2008. A comment made by a (delightful) teenager about lying to his parents:
‘It’s easier to get forgiveness than permission.’
