My Credo

My Credo

Reading Time: 4 minutes

This page is my attempt to empty my brain of the resources I use to map my views of the world; reflections of what I believe and seek out of life. I’ve included some of the quotes which represent my views, as well as websites/articles/books/podcasts which represent the best knowledge I have come across (so far) in my life. I hope you enjoy.

Note: There will be frequent updates to the content (naturally, as life charges on). 


Mantras & Aphorisms

  • “How you do anything is how you do everything.
  • “Someone too big for the small job is too small for the big job.”
  • “If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view and see things from that person’s angle as well as from your own.” Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People
  • “Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.” Francis Bacon
  • “Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. . . . And then one fine morning— So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” F. Scott Fitzgerald
  • “The world cares very little what you or I know, but it does care a great deal about what you or I do.” Booker T. Washington 
  • “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt
