Sunday Quotes: Graciousness

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.
-Chuck Gosdzinski

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.
-William Shakespeare

    That one is fun – Carlos Santana reminding us, “Choose to be gracious, the only alternative is madness!”
