The Collective

When you meet a woman who is intimidatingly witty, stylish, beautiful, and professionally accomplished, befriend her. Surrounding yourself with the best people doesn’t make you look worse by comparison. It makes you better.
— Ann Friedman, "Shine Theory: Why Powerful Women Make the Greatest Friends"
