Don’t try to be the best – you’re better than that!

From “Lincoln 365,” by Arnold Kunst:
June 9
'The way for a young man to rise is to improve himself every way he can, never suspecting that anybody wishes to hinder him. Allow me to assure you that suspicion and jealousy never did help any man in any situation. There may sometimes be ungenerous attempts to keep a young man down; and they will succeed, too, if he allows his mind to be diverted from its true channel to brood over the attempted injury. ' 
- Abraham Lincoln
’Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation, for it is better to be alone than in bad company.’
- George Washington
