Learning from the Road Runner

"The Road Runner approaches his world . . . [with the] spirit of wonder and wide-eyed curiosity [and] with an enthusiastic vitality solidly focused on a ceaseless pursuit of worth. His curiosity is as conspicuous as Wile E.'s conceit. His forward-focused perspective (rather than a look-over-your-shoulder defensiveness) keeps him forever fixed on what's to come, not frustrated by what was. He is constantly adapting, adjusting, learning, remembering."

From Beep! Beep! Competing in the Age of the Road Runner by Chip R. Bell & Oren Harari (2000), p. 159.
