As I have my breakfast & get ready to go to work, I’ve done a wee bit of posting of a moral variety. Well, let me bring it back to the political.
Despite what one may think of the administration of President Richard Nixon, he was a Republican, and his farewell address to his staff is one of my more favorite speeches.
A few months back during the heat & hatred of the campaign season I emailed an excpert of that speech to my partner at work. She liked it so much that she posted a copy in our office area. Just last night couple of other co-workers happened to notice the saying & equally reflected positively.
I first heard of it about 15 years ago, maybe closer to 20, when I bought my first computer & played the encyclopedia it came with. As such, I wanted to share the famous statement with everyone.
Always give your best, never get discouraged, never be petty; always remember, others may hate you, but those who hate you don’t win unless you hate them, and then you destroy yourself.
Now, unlike Nixon – I’m not going anywhere anytime soon. However, the sentiment is still words to live by.
