More quotes from Mr. Washington:
Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.
If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.
Few things can help an individual more than to place responsibility on him, and to let him know that you trust him.
