What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.”   —   Source Obscure

(This quote sounds so noble that many people have tried to attribute it to Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, or Oliver Wendell Holmes.  But, there’s no record of any of these men uttering this sentiment.  Could be a dude named Albert Jay Nock, who wrote an introduction to a book published in 1940 called “Meditations in Wall Street”.  Or William Morrow, the head of the publishing house who put out the book.  The author was a mystery until 1947 when the New York Times revealed the author to be Henry S. Haskins.  Haskins had been a Wall Street trader who had gotten in trouble with the Stock Exchange thirty years before.  The book is supposed to be about much more than Wall Street, and a nice philosophical read.  Maybe we should try to look it up!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
