Cocktails with the president

There were 49 CCS graduating students who attended the first Cocktail with the president on 8 September 2006 at 6:30-9:00p.m. The theme was “Quo vadis”, a Latin phrase meaning “where are you going.” It suits us, a question that bothers us now more than ever.

As usual Sir Belen shared lots of thoughts to ponder, mostly based form his experience.
Here are the views that struck me most:

“If it doesn’t kill you, it’s bound to do you good.”

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal.”

“Self mastery includes self discipline and self reliance.”

“…we are strong because we are individually strong… the members give strength to the organization, It should not be the other way around...”

“Success has many fathers, failure is an orphan.”


We took our seats though, but finger foods were served (so, the event ca still be justified as cocktail ^_^)
