Very good people

No one worth impressing is impressed by your attempts to impress them. Yet everyone is impressed when they sense authenticity and kindness.

It’s a waste of time and energy to merely look good. Put your effort into actually being good and delivering real value.

The most interesting people are those who take a genuine interest in others, not only with words, but with action. Be one of those.

The most respected people are those who act with respect toward people from whom they have nothing to gain. Be one of those, too.

If you’re constantly fretting about what other people think, they won’t think very highly of you. When you’re truly concerned about the welfare of others, there’s no need to worry about what they think of you.

There are a lot of very good people in this world. Value and appreciate them all without condition, and the courtesy will indeed be returned.

— Ralph Marston
