Partnership: the temporary suspension of mutual loathing in pursuit of funding“.
This quote was seen by Mike Chitty on a desk plaque.

Whilst this quote is extremely negative, it does seem to be the way partnership works for some people and, unfortunately, I have seen it at play with some people too. Being a cynic, I smirked when I read it and recounted the people for whom I knew it was true. Then came the need to search my own heart – that was more difficult to accept.
