Quote of the Day
A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame, a little less than his share of the credit.
Arnold H. Glasow
Humility is the true key to success. Successful people lose their way at times. They often embrace and overindulge from the fruits of success. Humility halts this arrogance and self-indulging trap.

What Wall Street and credit card companies are doing is really not much different from what gangsters and loan sharks do who make predatory loans. While the bankers wear three-piece suits and don't break the knee caps of those who can't pay back, they still are destroying people's lives.
The way to get things done is not to mind who gets the credit for doing them.
Our contribution purely depends on our consciousness and our willingness to support those in need, to show vulnerability and accept the support of others, to share without expecting the credit, to give it our all and allow our hard work to decide the outcome, to understand that control can only be achieved with a shared responsibility.
It stands to the everlasting credit of science that by acting on the human mind it has overcome man's insecurity before himself and before nature.

W. E. B. Du Bois
L'Oreal's slogan 'because you're worth it' has come to epitomise banal narcissism of early 21st century capitalism; easy indulgence and effortless self-love all available at a flick of the credit card.

P. J. O'Rourke
