Not doing more than average is what keeps the average down.
I am only an average man, but, by George, I work harder at it than the average man.
The average person puts only 25% of his energy and ability into his work. The world takes of its hat to those who put in more than 50% of their capacity, and stands on its head for those few and far between souls who devote 100%.
If it keeps up, man will atrophy all his limbs but the push-button finger.
If you wish to know what a person is, place him in authority.

There are no greater wretches in the world than many of those whom people in general take to be happy.
