Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.
- Thomas A. Edison
Never interrupt someone while they are doing what you said could not be done.
Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
