Committees quotes

John Kenneth Galbraith
Meetings are a great trap. Soon you find yourself trying to get agreement and then the people who disagree come to think they have a right to be persuaded. However, they are indispensable when you don't want to do anything.

Lester J. Pourciau
There is no monument dedicated to the memory of a committee.

Alfred Whitney Griswold
Could Hamlet have been written by a committee, or the Mona Lisa painted by a club?... Creative ideas do not spring from groups. They spring from individuals. The divine spark leaps from the finger of God to the finger of Adam.

Peter Drucker
Meetings are a symptom of bad organization. The fewer meetings the better.

Fred Allen
A conference is a gathering of people who singly can do nothing, but together can decide that nothing can be done.

Fred Allen
Committee - a group of men who individually can do nothing but as a group decide that nothing can be done.

Lewis Thomas
When committees gather, each member is necessarily an actor, uncontrollably acting out the part of himself, reading the lines that identify him, asserting his identity. We are designed, coded, it seems, to place the highest priority on being individuals, and we must do this first, at whatever cost, even if it means disability for the group.

Oscar Wilde
I know, of course, how important it is not to keep a business engagement, if one wants to retain any sense of the beauty of life.
