Covey, Stephen R.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
Lowell, James Russell
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how -- the very best I can.

If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.

Some people are born hammers, others anvils.
Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem.
