Grace

"Always there will be, along the sidelines of life, inferior souls who throw mud at those whose attainments they do not quite understand. The man who really accomplishes, doesn't pay attention to such detractors. If he did, he'd be on their level. He keeps an eye singled on the higher goal--and the mud never touches him."

--Jerome P. Fleishman

The ones on the sidelines need to read this more.

To answer those question, that is Hwy 59, it looks a little different now. Second, well, if you want, click the email link in the profile and I will answer you there. I don't want to post the answer.

Lee Ann, thanks for putting this up. It's a wonderful creedo.

hotboy said...

Definitely not into mud throwing! Dwarf throwing is at the very edge of my tolerance zone. You'd be taking mud to a gunfight anyway around those parts surely. Hotboy

Spinning Girl said...

Ellen said...

If only the politicians who run for office could read this quote more. They need the lesson!

An80sNut said...

I like this one. Just as success is the best deodorant, it makes great mudflaps.

jiggs said...

I wonder what this fleishman character thinks about mud wrestling? Shame on him if he thinks it anything other than awesome.

Lee Ann said...

Ellen ~ You are right.
Do you think it will ever happen?
