Trust, jealousy and respect

Let's start the week with some life lessons.

Trust

William Shakespeare once said:

Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none

while Stephen King said:

The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool

Jealousy

American science fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein describes jealousy as:

A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic INSECURITY

William Penn had this to say about jealous people:

The jealous are troublesome to others but a torment to themselves

Respect - a word not many understand.

Albert Einstein said:

Let every man be respected as an individual and no man idolised

But my personal favourite is a quote by Jack Roosevelt "Jackie" Robinson - an American baseball player who became the first African American to play in Major League Baseball.

I'm not concerned with your liking or disliking me...all I ask is that you respect me as a human being 

****

On another note, all the best to our national hockey junior coach K.Dharmaraj and his lads who are currently in Europe as they play several test matches there.

HD says: I will always remember the quote by BA of Malaysia deputy president Mohamed Al Amin Majid - "If you don't have anything nice to say about someone, it's best not to say anything."
