“No person ever got very high by pulling other people down. The intelligent merchant does not knock dawn his competitors. The sensible worker does not knock dawn those who work with him. Don’t knock dawn your friends. Don’t knock dawn your enemies. Don’t knock dawn yourself.”~ Lord Alfred Tennyson, 1809-1892, English Poet

    Dr. Bill,

    You would think this is common sense, but so many people don’t get it. You lift yourself up by surrounding yourself by savvy people and praising their accomplishments. In turn, they are there for you.

    Truer words never spoken.

  4. Fantastic quote. I think the hardest to follow is the last two (your enemies and yourself)
