Yardstick Quotations

Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected.

You have to be patient. With time, it grows into a large tree. And then the flowers bloom, and only then can the fruits be plucked.
Mamata Banerjee

The only yardstick for success our society has is being a champion. No one remembers anything else.
