Thoughts until next week

We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.

Compromise: The art of dividing a cake in such a way that everybody believes they got the biggest piece.

The best portion of a good person’s life is their little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.
