Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.

Live for real

There are those who do it just for the show. And there are those who do it for real. There are those who tell you what they think you want to hear. And there are those respect you enough to always speak the truth.

There are those who merely go through the motions. And there are those who sincerely seek to create real and lasting value.

You can get by for a while just living on the surface of life, feeding on those things that are fleeting and meaningless. There will come a time, though, when you’ll need and want something deeper, something with real nourishment.

And then you’ll wonder why you ever wasted your time with all those shallow, insignificant things. The sooner you live for real, true to who you are, the better life will be.

— Ralph Marston
