Wow--super advice. I love people who both understand the human condition, and can describe it it simple and beautiful terms. As one who people would say is successful on the big stage, I find it a constant struggle to keep ego and pride in check. Thanks for this powerful reminder that the most important things in life are not things.

It is good to remember what is important, but a balance must be struck. None of us is going to be famous, statistically, but it's not a bad thing to strive for achievement.

Profound thoughts and well-stated. In the play and movie, A Man For All Seasons, by Robert Bolt, Thomas More admonishes his young petitioner Richard Rich, to be a teacher. Rich, aspiring for the eminence of the court asks, "but who would know it?" More responds, "God, your pupils...not a bad audience." The allure proved too much for poor Rich as he ultimately sells his soul for eminence.
