WORDS THAT STILL RING TRUE
The other day the Sun Sentinel had a very interesting article by Steve Rosen about Elbert Hubbard who described himself as a homespun philosopher.



In a recently found book titled "The Notebook of Elbert Hubbard" published by family members in 1927 there are many quotations from simpler times that still have meaning in today's world.

Here are some wonderful examples:
Talk less and listen more. (MORE PEOPLE SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO THIS ONE)

The best preparation for good work tomorrow is to do good work today.

It is easy to get everything you want, provided you first learn to do without the things you cannot get.

The greatest mistake you can make is to be continually fearing you will make one.(THAT"S A GOODY)

Better mend one fault in yourself than a hundred in your neighbor.

Before you are fit to give orders, you must be willing to take orders. The leader of the orchestra has always been a man who has played second fiddle.

Do work with your whole heart and you will succeed - there is no competition.

The actual benefit of college does not come so much from curriculum as from the change of environment. New people, new scenes, new conditions with which to cope - these are the things for growth. (MY FAVORITE)

Enthusiasm is the great hill-climber. (SO TRUE)
What's your favorite?

A wise man indeed.
"Before you are fit to give orders, you must be willing to take orders. The leader of the orchestra has always been a man who has played second fiddle."
 
Like you, my favorite is the college one.
 
Those are real gems!
 
Easy to get what you want hit me as a good one.
 
I can't choose a favorite -- they're all great!!!
 
They are all good, but I really like the one about fearing to make a mistake.
 
All very true. I think I had better practice number one. ;-)
 
All - so true
 
Millie--My favorites are the one about fear and the one about enthusiasm. I always liked to hire enthusiastic people. They could be taught everything else, but enthusiasm seems to come from within.
Thanks for the listing.
