Lessons From Prison

In just over two years behind bars, Hank Morris plowed through more than 250 books, created a TV show pilot and a screenplay, and also walked about nine miles a day. The former political consultant at the center of a play-to-pay scheme has delineated five things he learned in prison:

  • Freedom isn't free. . . I took it for granted.
  • A simple life and a more balanced life is healthier and better than a helter-skelter, workaholic life.
  • You have to let people who love you help you.
  • You don't go over the line. But more than going over the line, you don't even go to the line. There's no reason for it.

That's four. Read the fifth in the WSJ's Law Blog.
