So is cheerfulness, or a good temper, the more it is spent, the more remains.

Always choose excellence

Whatever you do, do it well. Whatever you do, do with excellence.

You can get by in life without engendering excellence, without doing your very best. But merely getting by is not the point.

You have the opportunity to immerse yourself in life’s richness, so seize that opportunity and hold on tight. Whatever life delivers, you can transform it into excellence.

With your efforts, pull excellence from the most ordinary moments and the most common tasks. Take advantage of every chance to feel the satisfaction of knowing you have given your best.

Excellence reminds you how much you care. Excellence shows you how great it is to be alive.

You always have a choice of how to think, what to feel, how to act, what to expect and how to live. Always choose excellence.

— Ralph Marston
