Life is mostly froth and bubble; Two things stand like stone: Kindness in another’s trouble, Courage in our own.
-Adam Lindsay Gordon
It’s called gracious professionalism. The idea is to be open and help more people learn.
Never let your persistence and passion turn into stubbornness and ignorance.
-Anthony J. D’Angelo
Sometimes we need to remind ourselves that thankfulness is indeed a virtue.
-William J. Bennett
Realize that when you get older, you either get senile or become gracious. There’s no in-between. You become senile when you think the world short-changed you, or everybody wakes up to screw you. You become gracious when you realize that you have something the world needs, and people are happy to see you when you come into the room.
– Carlos Santana
Let me be ignorant, and in nothing good, but graciously to know I am no better.
Love the quotes, Tony! “Gracious professionalism” – I like that very much. And it describes you well.
Aw, thanks Dawn! I like that quote a lot as well – that one and the “froth and bubble” quote from Adam Gordon are my favorites this week – those little reminders are always helpful! 🙂
Love the Santana quote Tony…thanks
That one is fun – Carlos Santana reminding us, “Choose to be gracious, the only alternative is madness!”
Thanks for commenting, David!
