Tributaries to the Whole…

“If we study the lives of great men and women carefully and unemotionally we find that, invariably, greatness was developed, tested and revealed through the darker periods of their lives. One of the largest tributaries of the river of greatness is always the stream of adversity. A desire to help others is our most noble attribute; it gives immortal momentum to life and is our only certain path to heaven.”

Cavett Robert

A nature, side note…this small creek pours down into the river, in the foreground. I would sit and watch salmon struggle up the small tributary’s gradient, backs out of the water…on and on toward quiet waters to spawn.

Pinnacle

“On the pinnacle of success man does not stand firm long.”   Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1786

“Fame is an illusive thing / here today, gone tomorrow. The fickle, shallow mob raises its heroes to the pinnacle of approval today and hurls them into oblivion tomorrow at the slightest whim; cheers today, hisses tomorrow; utter forgetfulness in a few months.”  Henry Miller, 1971

On a slightly more positive note…

“You have reached the pinnacle of success as soon as you become uninterested in money, compliments or publicity.”  Thomas Wolfe
