How far you go in life...

(click the facebook button above if you like this)

"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these."

-George Washington Carver

Nice one.

Nice one.

Somehow I feel that this quote you recall in your post is very close to the combination of three short ones that I like much from Thoreau :

"What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals."

"It is the greatest of all advantages to enjoy no advantage at all."

"The most I can do for my friend is simply to be his friend."

-- Henry David Thoreau

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

"To study and not think is a waste. To think and not study is dangerous." -- Confucius

That's one of my

favorite quotes. Funny you should mention him. I was just reading one of his biographies.
