work promotes confidence

Work Promotes Confidence, ca. 1936

Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong. - Peter T. McIntyre

Our ordinary mind always tries to persuade us that we are nothing but acorns and that our greatest happiness will be to become bigger, fatter, shinier acorns; but that is of interest only to pigs. Our faith gives us knowledge of something better: that we can become oak trees. ~E.F. Schumacher

Self-confidence grows on trees, in other people's orchards. - Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook, 1960

Success comes in cans, not cant's. - Anonymous
