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

Never stop growing

When you think you know it all, then you deny yourself the opportunity to learn anything new. When you decide that you’ve seen it all, you cut yourself off from new and enlightening experiences.

Every day is an opportunity to grow. Always take advantage of that opportunity, for it is a big part of what makes you alive.

No matter how much you’ve already accomplished, you can still receive great benefit from new challenges. No matter what your level of learning and experience, you can always raise that level even higher.

When you think you have all the answers, get busy and find some more questions. View each new discovery as a starting point, and not as a final destination.

The joy of life is in the journey. The fulfillment of life is in the growing.

Keep that growing going, and never let it stop.

— Ralph Marston
