Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it.

Why you do it

There’s a fine line between what works and what doesn’t. Qualities similar in outward appearance can be radically different in inner motivation, and in their results.

Persistence expands your options. Stubbornness limits them.

Confidence attracts people and transforms opportunity into achievement. Arrogance squanders opportunity and pushes people away.

Generosity earns you great admiration and loyalty. Extravagance makes you look foolish and insecure.

Challenging others to be their best can lead to widespread achievement. Scolding others about their worst behaviors is sure to create massive resentment.

Don’t become so obsessed with a good thing that it turns into a bad thing. Remember, it’s not just what you do, it’s why you do it.

— Ralph Marston
