”I remember that he took me aside into his little office in our house and said this to me. I think he meant it in the sense that you gain a certain power and strength and that ultimately you defuse the situation when you apologise first.

"It stuck with me all these years and it means a lot to me now thinking about it, because my dad did pass away a few years ago. I find it especially funny in some ways because my dad was definitely not the type to say sorry.

”In fact I don’t think he ever apologised in his life, or at least not that I’m aware of. But clearly he was still a very wise man, regardless of the fact that he was a very proud man.” Taken in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on the SOTM World Tour.

"The first to say sorry is the strongest, and wisest too. It not only diffuses the situation, it let's you and the other person not have the time for grudges!"
