The figure of 150 seems to represent the maximum number of individuals with whom we can have a genuinely social relationship, the kind of relationship that goes with knowing who they are and how they relate to us. Putting it another way, it’s the number of people you would not feel embarrassed about joining uninvited for a drink if you happened to bump into them in a bar.

Facing an intimidating situation, come as one, but stand as ten thousand Facing an intimidating situation, come as one, but stand as ten thousand
Maya Angelou by Henry Lee Battle

[Oprah Winfrey said in one of the interview she was giving :]

"There’s a wonderful phrase by Maya Angelou, from a poem that she wrote called “To our grandmothers”, that she says:

I come as one, but I stand as ten thousand.

So when I walk into a room, particularly before I have something really challenging to do, or I’m going to be in a circumstance where I feel I’m going to be you know, up against some difficulties. I will literally sit, and I will call on the 10,000."

Note : the actual phrase in the poem is : "I go forth along, and stand as ten thousand."
