Chalmerisms

$ucce$$ begins with one dollar and ends with two. Very few men live long enough to build up two reputations. There is nothing better than to have men come together in the same line of work, rub elbows and find out they all have the same problems to meet. A man may be as honest as Abe Lincoln and as wise as Solomon; he may be a slave of industry and a paragon of virtue. But unless he capsules those qualities with unadulterated enthusiasm, I wouldn’t give him desk room. That man who doesn’t get some comfort and some enthusiasm out of his daily work is in a bad way. He’s just the cog in the mechanism. — Hugh Chalmers
