The best work . . . work you like.
The greatest mistake . . .giving up.
The greatest need . . . common sense.

The most expensive indulgence . . . hate.
The most disagreeable person . . .the complainer.
The best teacher. . . one who makes you want to learn.
The worse bankrupt . . . the soul who has lost enthusiasm.
