A man is rich in proportion to the number of things which he can afford to let alone.

If you wish

If you wish to be respected, then be ever respectful. If you wish to be understood, then make it your business to sincerely understand.

If you wish to be appreciated, then be ever grateful. If you wish to be loved, then give love in each moment.

If you wish to be wealthy, then act to create real value. If you wish to learn, then take time to teach.

If you wish to climb higher, then lift others up. If you wish to be wise, then share what you know.

Whatever you wish, life will surely give it. What you must do, though, is to truly live it.

There is so much to live for and so much to see. You will have whatever you are willing to be.

— Ralph Marston
