Craig's Quotes

    • Go placidly amid the noise and haste,

    • and remember what peace there may be in silence.

    • As far as possible without surrender

    • be on good terms with all persons.

    • Speak your truth quietly and clearly;

    • and listen to others,

    • even the dull and the ignorant;

    • they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
