Wonder


I have just read this book, it is lovely.


“The best way to measure how much you've grown isn't by inches or the number of laps you can now run around the track, or even your grade point average-- though those things are important, to be sure. It's what you've done with your time, how you've chosen to spend your days, and whom you've touched this year. That, to me, is the greatest measure of success.”
R.J. Palacio, Wonder

  2. Yes, that's lovely. It's how I have come to measure success too. I compare the people pursuing high-powered careers with those who help others, or who think deeply, and who reach out beyond their immediate families. Invariably the people I want to be, the people I admire, are not the high-flyers, but the latter.
