A Quote by John William Gardner on achievement, discipline, excellence, greatness, people, purpose, and tenacity

Some people have greatness thrust upon them. Few have excellence thrust upon them. . . . They achieve it. They do not achieve it unwittingly by doing what comes naturally and they don't stumble into it in the course of amusing themselves. All excellence involves discipline and tenacity of purpose.

John William Gardner (1912 -)
