Logan Pearsall Smith wrote “Afterthoughts” in 1931 but I find his aphorisms timeless. I selected these six as good advice or perspective for entrepreneurs:
“The future looms a dark fog before us; but through it we see the dark eyes of Posterity gazing at us coldly”
“There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and, after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second.”
“Solvency is entirely a matter of temperament.”
“Only those who get into scrapes with their eyes open can find the safe way out.”
“Charming people live up to the very edge of their charm, and behave as outrageously as the world will let them.”
“The test of a vocation is a love of the drudgery it involves.”
