Thought of the Day
“Every man alone is sincere.
At the entrance of a second person,
We parry and fend the approach
of our fellow-man by compliments,
by gossip, by amusements, by affairs.
We cover up our thought from him
under a hundred folds.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Quote for the Day
“My grandfather once told me
that there are two kinds of people:
those who work and those who take the credit.
He told me to try to be in the first group;
there was less competition there.”
Thought for the Day
For many years I worked in middle management for corporate America. Those of you who are there now know that middle managers; do all the work, make little money, and get none of the credit. I usually had no problem with this because I knew that what I did made a difference, and what I did first and foremost was take care of those who worked for me, then I took care of the customer next, and last I took care of my boss and the company.
Thought for Today
It is better to be hated for what you are
than to be loved for something you are not.
“The superior man seeks what is right;
the inferior one, what is profitable.”
