Work to Become
“We work to become, not to acquire.”—Elbert Hubbard
There's nothing wrong with tangible rewards. From the laboratory mouse to the Wall Street CEO, having something of value waiting for you at the end of your efforrts is a time-tested guarantor of success. And yet the highest aim must always be the make-up of the man, not the composition of the medal. Acquisitions can be lost—souls cannot.
