“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.”

From Anthony J D’Angelo. The quote below is from Mortimer Adler …

“The purpose of learning is growth, and our minds, unlike our bodies, can continue growing as long as we live.”

“The essence of a happy life is found in the quality of our relationships!”

I spotted this quote in a tagline on the a blog called Relationships Matters hosted by Sonja Ridden. Sonja quotes Dr Phil in a post on her site with related advice …

“The quality of a relationship is a function of the extent to which it is built on a solid underlying friendship and meets the needs of the two people involved.”

“It’s amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit”

This quote is commonly attributed to Ronald Reagan (appearently Reagan had a sign on his desk in the Oval Office with this advice) but our research suggests Harry S Truman deserves the credit.

We also like this related advice from Indira Gandhi …

“My grandfather once told me that there were two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was much less competition.”

Our take-away is … 1) focus on results and not recognition. 2) people around you are more likely to help you work toward your goals if they feel their efforts will be recognized in the end.
