"Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which one has overcome." - Booker T. Washington
In fact, I loved that quote so much that I looked up others by Mr. Washington. And that has led me to proclaim today the unofficial "Booker T. Washington Day" on rosemary-go-round. :)
Feast your eyes on these fabulous quotes:
"I will permit no man to narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him."
"If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else."
"No race can prosper till it learns that there is as much dignity in tilling a field as in writing a poem."
"One man cannot hold another man down in the ditch without remaining down in the ditch with him."
"There are two ways of exerting one's strength: one is pushing down, the other is pulling up."
- Booker T. Washington
What do you think? Was the man a genius or what? I think so. It is so inspirational to me to see the incredible positives that extraordinary people can make of their difficulties. It buoys me.
I hope you've enjoyed the quotes! Have a great week everyone!
