Trust, jealousy and respect
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
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."
