“There’s a little bit
in every box.”
It’s hard to rethink the
box fox when you’re so close to it.
“No need to think outside the box.
Just sit in the box and contain yourself.”
“Oh, thought you said it’s BOX-IN’ day!”
“Your antidepressant is in the box.”
“Instead of thinking outside the box,
get rid of the box.”
– Deepak Chopra
A manager of an electronics shop ordered a part number 669, from the factory. When it arrived, he noticed they’d sent him part 699 instead. He fired off an angry letter and sent it back. A few days later, he got the replacement. It was the same part, along with a note containing these four words: TURN THE BOX OVER.
