On bringing your own dignity.......

     "Politicians are fond of telling us that work gives people
dignity.  I agree.   Having work to do and the means to make
a living for oneself and one's family is important.  But it is
only half the equation.  What we haven't been told nearly
enough is that people give work dignity.  There are no
unimportant jobs, just people who feel unimportant doing
their jobs.   That's probably why B. C. Forbes, the legendary
founder of Forbes magazine said, 'There is more credit
and satisfaction in being a first-rate truck driver than in
a tenth-rate executive.'"

-Mark Sanborn,  The Fred Factor
