To Better Myself Without Considering Myself Better

"Never wrong to better yourself ...
Always wrong to consider yourself better."
My Father

A lady is always striving to improve and strengthen her mind, her body, her spirit.  She aspires to new personal heights.  In doing so, however, she never comes to see herself as superior. She betters herself without ever regarding herself better than others.

  4. Nancy, that's a good quote from your Father. Too true. What's funny about me is that the more I strive to be better, the more often I'm aware of falling short, and so the more humble I feel!
