berger on collaboration

The only rule in collaborations is that one should never strike deals and never compromise,” he says. If you disagree on something you shouldn’t yield and you shouldn’t insist on winning. Instead you should just accept that the solution is not right and carry on until it is right. The temptation to say you can have this one and I will have the next one’ is fatal.

– John Berger, quoted in Nichola Wroe, The Guardian, 23 April 2011
