PONDER on THIS for Thursday, March 27th, 2013 by Stuart Wilde in WHISPERING WINDS OF CHANGE

“Striving for greatness is so ridiculous and childlike. Certainly, if you are very talented, you may become great through no fault of your own, but that’s a handicap you’ll learn to bear. But striving for greatness is striving for nothing in particular. What most consider as greatness seems to me not worth having. Greatness obliges you to be gracious and make small talk and shake hands and be nice to lots of people you don’t know. You will have to grin like a simpleton, sign little pieces of paper to keep people happy, and show up at dreary events, dressed like a dog’s dinner, propose toasts, and hand out things. There is an effort in the theatrics of it all that doesn’t appeal. I think greatness is for people who have nothing better to do. Anonymous greatness is the goal for scamps.”

Stuart Wilde, in “Whispering Winds of Change”
