Nothing is really work unless you would rather be doing something else. – James M. Barrie who was born on this day in 1860.
He also said:
There are few more impressive sights in the world than a Scotsman on the make.
Life is a long lesson in humility.
I am not young enough to know everything.
The life of every man is a diary in which he means to write one story, and writes another; and his humblest hour is when he compares the volume as it is with what he vowed to make it.
We are all failures at least, all the best of us are.
Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.
Shall we make a new rule of life from tonight: always to try to be a little kinder than is necessary?
We never understand how little we need in this world until we know the loss of it.
