How to explain collaboration: 10 great sayings

Collaboration can be such a heavy word at work (“Help me out; it’s just people working together, isn’t it?” “Yes, but…”)
And yet, it’s used in a cool way in the arts, and everybody understands: maybe that’s the way to grasping it. Here are my favourite quotations about collaboration: some about life inside the office, some from outside, and some from both (hurray!) .Have you got new ones for the list?
