A sense of duty is useful in work but offensive in personal relations. People wish to be liked, not to be endured with patient resignation.
I am announcing my resignation from Congress so my colleagues can get back to work, my neighbors can choose a new representative and most importantly that my wife and I can continue to heal from the damage I have caused.
Zur Resignation gehört Charakter.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang von
Resignation, not mystic, not detached, but resignation open-eyed, conscious, and informed by love, is the only one of our feelings for which it is impossible to become a sham.
The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary.
