“Everyday, in every moment, you get to exercise choices that will determine whether or not you will become a great person living a great life. Greatness is not something predetermined, predestined or carved into your fate by forces beyond your central. Greatness is always in the memories of the decision”..~~Jeff Olson
If any man seeks for greatness, let him forget greatness and ask for truth, and he will find both. –Horace Mann, educational reformer (1796-1859).
“Patriotism is proud of a country’s virtues and eager to correct its deficiencies; it also acknowledges the legitimate patriotism of other countries, with their own specific virtues. The pride of nationalism, however, trumpets its country’s virtues and denies its deficiencies, while it is contemptuous toward the virtues of other countries. It wants to be, and proclaims itself to be, “the greatest”, but greatness is not required of a country; only goodness is.” –Sydney J. Harris, journalist and author (1917-1986)
