Currie's Gratitude 2 July 2014

Workers must root out the idea that by keeping the results of their labors to themselves a fortune will be assured to them. Patent fees are so much wasted money. The flying machine of the future will not be born fully fledged and capable of a flight for 1,000 miles or so. Like everything else it must be evolved gradually. The first difficulty is to get a thing that will fly at all. When this is made, a full description should be published as an aid to others. Excellence of design and workmanship will always defy competition. (1894)   [Lawrence Hargrave]

I wonder often at the way we live in 2014. And then this, from 120 years ago comes and shows me a glimpse of why…

You will evolve past certain people. Let yourself.   [Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass]

I never realised that this was just how it goes. But indeed it does. Oh indeed it does.

Don't let yourself stagnate or reach a plateau. Keep learning, keep improving. Be open to change. Your ability to constantly raise the bar higher and set standards will help you evolve and take you to the next level.   [Roopleen]

NOT so much the higher bar or next level, just keep following that BEautimous bouncing ball!!

I love you, Currie
