Push the fear aside, take the steering wheel into your own hands, and drive straight on. Trust me you won’t ever regret it. Falsely yours, Ralph Waldo...

“There Are Other Measures Of Self-Respect For A Man, Than The Number Of Clean Shirts He Puts On Every Day.”

My dear, A man’s car price is not a measure of how much self-respect he has for himself. A man’s house size is not a measure of his self-respect. And same goes for a man’s wardrobe.

My dear, You asked of me how one knows they have succeeded. To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed...

“For Everything You Have Missed, You Have Gained Something Else, And For Everything You Gain, You Lose Something Else.”

My dear, Do not over-concern yourself with that you have missed. For one gains something in every moment they experience. And thus one loses something in that moment too. It is but a trade-off. Just make sure that what you gain is worth more to you that what you lose. Everything but is of no over-concern. Falsely yours, Ralph Waldo Emerson ...
