Alexander de Seversky

1894 - 1974

A Quote by Alexander Procofieff de Seversky on disability, discovery, embarrassment, respect, and world

I discovered early that the hardest thing to overcome is not a physical disability but the mental condition which it induces. The world, I found, has a way of taking a man pretty much at his own rating. If he permits his loss to make him embarrassed and apologetic, he will draw embarrassment from others. But if he gains his own respect, the respect of those around him comes easily.
