The human being who lives only for himself finally reaps nothing but unhappiness. Selfishness corrodes. Unselfishness ennobles, satisfies. Don't put off the joy derivable from doing helpful, kindly things for others.
A price has to be paid for success. Almost invariably those who have reached the summits worked harder and longer, studied and planned more assiduously, practiced more self-denial, overcame more difficulties than those of us who have not risen so far.
Without self-respect there can be no genuine success. Success won at the cost of self-respect is not success Ã‚Â¾ for what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own self-respect.
