Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote that “mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself”. My observation has been that mediocre men recognise genius, resent it, and feel compelled to destroy it. 

There are very few men of genius in advertising agencies. But we need all we can find. Almost without exception they are disagreeable. Don’t destroy them. They lay golden eggs.
