Ken Rees: What quote, lyric or poem inspires you?

FAST COMPANY: What quote, lyric or poem inspires you?

KEN REES: Despite having a terrible memory for quotes, I’ve always remembered the line from Sun Tzu that goes something like “Retreat like a moving mountain, advance like a rainstorm.” I think it’s always stayed with me because it’s really a mandate to be relentless in the face of adversity yet take advantage of opportunities when they arise — and like all entrepreneurs, I’ve had plenty of both. So it’s a good thing to keep in mind.
