“It is very lonesome at the summit!”
“Like a man’s life, when he has climbed to eminence.” — Nathaniel Hawthorne, 1860
Even when we reach the top, we’re not alone. We always have others to call upon, even if they’re not colleagues.
Trusted advisors keep us focused, remind us of the importance of relationships, help us keep our egos in check, and help us become lifelong learners and servants.
Some quotes from this episode that reflect the value of our advisors:
“If a man does not make new acquaintances as he advances through life, he will soon find himself left alone. A man, Sir, should keep his friendship in constant repair.” — Samuel Johnson, 1755
“Modesty is a virtue not often found among poets, for almost every one of them thinks himself the greatest in the world.” — Miguel de Cervantes, 1615
“I had been so near obtaining what I so earnestly longed for—somebody to speak to, and to learn some knowledge from them.” — Daniel Defoe, 1719
