Every morning in africa a gazelle Wakes up
It knows it must run faster than the fastest of the lions or it will be killed
Every morning a lion wakes up
It knows it has to outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death
It doesn’t matter whether you are lion or gazelle
When the sun comes up, better start running
– African proverb, translated in mandarin and posted on the floor of Chinese factory then translated into English and printed in the book The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman.
