Friday’s Piece

“To rejoice at a success is not the same as taking credit for it. To deny oneself the first is to become a hypocrite and a denier of life; to permit oneself the second is a childish indulgence which will prevent one from ever growing up.”

(Dag Hammarskjöld, 1905 – 1961, Swedish economist and diplomat who served as the second Secretary-General of the United Nations)

John Lentell
5 November 1971
