It is a fine thing to have ability, but the ability to discover ability in others is the true test.
Great ability without discretion comes almost invariably to a tragic end.
Lack of will power has caused more failure than lack of intelligence or ability.
Executive ability is deciding quickly and getting somebody else to do the work.
There are few, if any, jobs in which ability alone is sufficient. Needed, also, are loyalty, sincerity, enthusiasm, and team play.
To accept good advice is but to increase one's own ability.
