You have a good many little gifts and virtues, but there’s no need of parading them, for conceit spoils the finest genius. There are not much danger that real talent or goodness will be overlooked long, and the great charm of all power is modesty.
————- Louisa May Alcott
Ask yourself the secret of your success. Listen to your answer and, practice it.
———- Richard Bach
They say a person needs just need three things to be truly happy in this world; someone to love, something to do and something to hope for.
———— Tom Bodett
It has always seemed strange to me… the things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feelings, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first, they love the produce of the second.
——— John Steinbeck
