Just some thoughts:
Was said to me by my adopted dad one summer night standing in my parent’s backyard. He listened to my story. I then watched him take a drag off his Lucky Strikes and say to me:
“Your ego is not worth fifty dollars.”
On page 557 in my book Just Some Thoughts I tell that story. The matter was about a piece of furniture (couch), my wife and a decision regarding both. Over the years I have often retreated to those words.
All of us have to ask ourselves that question:
“How much and at what cost will we let our ego take over?”
