Four 3-word sentences that lead to wisdom

It’s no secret that my favourite fiction genre is the murder mystery. And of the many, many detective series I read, my favourite character without question is Louise Penny’s creation, Inspector Armand Gamache of the Québec Sûreté. If you’ve never visited the village of Three Pines, I encourage you to begin with his first outing, Still Life.

The Inspector sometimes invites police officers to join his team who are faltering in their career, because he sees something in them that their superior officers do not. Often they are flawed individuals, wrestling with personal demons. Perhaps that’s why I like Gamache so much. They soon learn that Gamache’s approach to policing begins with four simple 3-word sentences that, in his words, “lead to wisdom.” I think they’re helpful for more than just police officers, and so they’re posted on mirrors in our home as a reminder:

Perhaps you’ll find them helpful as well.
