Quote of the Week #3
“Years ago my mother used to say to me, she’d say, ‘In this world, Elwood, you must be,’ — she always called me Elwood — ‘In this world, you must be oh so smart, or oh so pleasant.’ Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.”
– Elwood P. Dowd
I like going with smart! But I try to be pleasant. Yet, sometimes pleasant just doesn’t quite get you there.
I think a mixture of the two is best, but if there has to be imbalance, I’d rather there was more pleasant than less.
