    Yesterday, Twitter learned that UNC Chapel Hill was hiring a lecturer to teach courses in both Shakespeare and business writing (at a rate of… $8,000 per course). Of course, if the university really wanted to streamline operations, the two could be seamlessly combined. (You’re welcome, UNC English department.)

    In time we hate that which we often circle back about.

    How poor are they that have not stock options! What wound did ever heal but by vesting?

    I maximized my time, and now doth my time maximize me.

    The course of true disruption never did run smooth.

    My bounty is as boundless as the sea, my Series A funding as deep; the more I pitch to thee, the more I have, for VC is infinite.

    No legacy is so rich as Warby Parker.

    We know what we are, but know not what we may be after we pivot.

    All the team’s a family, and all the team members merely emotionally bound never to request more financial compensation, because come on, there are free snacks here! They have their deliverables and their bandwidth; And one man in his time has many balls in the air.

    Things won are done; joy’s soul lies in the infinite hustle.

    There is nothing either good or bad, but the market makes it so.

    All’s well that aligns well with the core values of our company.

    Wisely and slow. They stumble that run fast. But the hard deadline for this is Thursday.

    Though she be but little, she is a girlboss keeps forgetting to eat lunch because she hustles so hard!
