The measure of a man is often how much you can do with what little you are given.
The less you have to begin with, the greater the man you are… to make much of it.
I am amazed at how often men born to wealth and power will make absolutely no use of it.
And I am in awe of those men not so favored by Fate, who nonetheless dig in their heels, refuse to give up, and make greatness from poverty.
I’ve often said that for America to have a truly great president, it would have to be a man for whom a $300K/year salary is not a pay cut, but a blessing… a man honored to serve, and not merely be served.
This ended up being less brief than I intended, but what the hey. Good stuff, all the same.
