I’ve been reading Tuesdays with Morrie written by Mitch Albom today (I’m almost done) and wanted to share a quote from it here:

…if you’re trying to show off for people at the top, forget it. They will look down at you anyhow. And if you’re trying to show off for people at the bottom, forget it. They will only envy you. Status will get you nowhere. Only an open heart will allow you to float equally between everyone

I still stand by this blog post I wrote in 2007 — The more you know, the less you need.
