Forget Yourself Into Greatness

Consider the comments of William Arthur Ward of Texas Wesleyan College in Fort Worth Texas.

If you are wise, you will forget yourself into greatness.

Forget your rights, but remember your responsibilities.

Forget your inconveniences, but remember your blessings.

Forget your own accomplishments, but remember your debts to others.

Forget your privileges, but remember your obligations.

Empty your days of the search for security; fill them with a passion for service.

Empty your hours of for recognition; fill them with the aspiration for achievement.

Empty your moments of the need for entertainment; fill them with the quest of creativity.
