Short & Sweet


This quote has it's roots in a famous quote by Anna Gould.  She said, "Be beautiful if you can, wise if you want to, but be respected-that is essential."  While I don't completely disagree with Ms. Gould she did get some things wrong.  You can only earn respect and respect is earned through being gracious.

Take time today to defend the defenseless...to stand against injustice.  Use every gift in your arsenal, wisdom, wit, and beauty, but always remember--never, ever forget--that respect is earned.  It's earned when you are full of grace.

  1. Mmm, pinned this. I so love it. Grace has been something I've been thinking about a lot in many different aspects of my life (including parenting), I really would like to learn to be more gracious.
