Wit and Wisdom from Bart Potenza

Look Two Ways on a One-Way Street

“Want joy in your life?  Be grateful.”  Bart Potenza

Our friend, Bart Potenza, has written down his aphorisms in a delightful new book entitled Look Two Ways on a One-Way Street (Lantern Books, New York, 2008).  It can be ordered from www.lanternbooks.com.

Bart is the Chairman of the Board and senior statesman of New York’s Vegan restaurant scene.  He and his partner, Joy Pierson, founded and run New York’s finest vegetarian restaurants, the Candle Cafe and Candle 79.  See www.candlecafe.com.  He and Ms. Pierson co-authored The Candle Cafe Cookbook.

“If you want a piece of the pie, you may have to bake it yourself.”

Bart compiled his aphorisms which have appeared on his restaurant windows. 

Another bit of Bart’s wisdom for our troubled economy:  “Want to make lots of money?  Invest in yourself.”
