Manly Quote Mondays: Glamour Is Not Greatness

29 Apr

Let it never be forgotten that glamour is not greatness; applause is not fame; prominence is not eminence.

The man of the hour is not apt to be the man of the ages.

A stone may sparkle, but that does not make it a diamond; people may have money, but that does not make them a success.

It is what the unimportant people do that really counts and determines the course of history.

The greatest forces in the universe are never spectacular.

Summer showers are more effective than hurricanes, but they get no publicity.

The world would soon die but for the fidelity, loyalty, and consecration of those whose names are unhonored and unsung.

– James R. Sizoo

And they came to Capernaum. And when he was in the house he asked them, “What were you discussing on the way?” But they kept silent, for on the way they had argued with one another about who was the greatest. And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.”            

-Mark 9:33-35
