This is the final test of a gentleman: his respect for those who can be of no possible value to him.

Life’s lessons

You have the chance to learn something valuable today. Whether the day is frenzied or peaceful, stressful or relaxing, there is much you can learn from the living of it.

Some people let life’s lessons slip by unnoticed. Others take them to heart, eagerly and often. Life offers its lessons to all. And life richly rewards those who accept and appreciate them.

You could complain that something doesn’t work, or you could learn to make it work. You can allow the setbacks to discourage you, or you can let the setbacks teach you how to get ahead.

From every experience there is a lesson. From every person, from every situation, from every success, and especially from every disappointment, there is something to be learned.

Learn all you can from those lessons. Master life’s lessons, and you’ll surely master life.

— Ralph Marston
