How to Become Truly Great

I found this quotation and posted it on my Facebook and thought it was too wonderful not to share here as well. I think they're terrific words to live by, don't you? It's so easy to forget this when we're wrapped up in our own little world.
“To become truly great, one has to stand with people, not above them.”
-- Charles de Montesquieu

  3. Awesome quote. I would just like to add that I appreciate how you personally, Lori, "stand with" and encourage people that you could be "above". It makes a big difference...at least to me!

  5. So true. In these days of Social networking we often forget that and constantly hoot our own horn or focus on advertising our selves. But the core thing in this life is when you listen to others and care for them.

    I have seen that in you Lori, have commented that before too some where I guess and I feel it is an important thing that you believe and that comes out. Thank you. Dita.
