For the last few years, the first word that would come to my mind when I would think about Bill Cosby would be “tragedy.” And I understand completely that for many people, the only reflex that they may have left where he is concerned is to Kill Bill. Fair enough. But we would be remiss if we were to throw away everything that he ever did or ignore everything that he ever said.
I’ll only keep my lawyer hat on long enough to say that we have to let the courts work out the facts and resolutions. This man put a dent in the zeitgeist like few others and all of his work is there for us to explore or reflect on at our leisure. So today I am going to share one of my favorite quotes from Bill Cosby. When speaking to a group of college kids at a campus event, Bill was asked to divulge his keys to success. He answered:
I really don’t know what the key to success is. But I can tell you for sure what the key to failure is: Trying to please everybody.
Well said, Bill. I don’t think they had “drop the mic” back then but they certainly should have.
