I read a great Gandhi quote – and great reminder – yesterday that said:
To believe in something and not to live it is dishonest.
I remember replying to a friend’s post on Twitter a couple months back. The post said something to the effect of, “I went out of my way to hold a door for somebody, and didn’t get a thank you. Should I be annoyed by this?” Although I could empathize, my response was an absolute no. And the reason is that he wasn’t holding the door for a “thank you.” He was holding the door because it was the right thing to do.
