Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are. And remember, there are a lot of people out there who succumb to jealousy and live their lives vicariously through you. Your SUCCESSes only make them more aware of the meaningless lives they lead, while you don't know or care that they exist.

My heroes have always been Cowboys - and still are it seems!
The two wolves
An old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said,
"My son, the battle is between two wolves. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, sorrow, regret,
greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority,
and ego.
The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence,
empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which
wolf wins?"
The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

" Half of the American people never read a newspaper.   Half never voted for President.  One hopes it is the same half."  -- Gore Vidal

"A hundred years from now, it will not matter the sort of house I lived in,
what my bank account was, or the car I drove....but the world may be
different because I was important in the life of the animals and the creatures on
this earth."

"Folks will know how large your soul is, by the way you treat a dog." -
Charles F. Doran

"If you have work you love, you have a life. "--Jack Nicholson

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his
life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the
last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."

Isabella's orphan baby, "Sunny."   A rancher woman came by late evening on February 23, 2006, with her pregnant,  prolapsed Anatolian x Pyrenees female, Joleen.  We were able to pull this baby, but Joleen died the next day at the rancher woman's vet's office.   Isabella, with her splendid temperament, has taken on "Sunny" as one of her own.   I am so proud of Isabella and her new "son."  That's Shefaro temperament at it's best!   Birth mom was Joleen, birth dad is Kujo, a Pinto Anatolian male pictured on my webpage.
