This seems to become more true as you obtain more personal and professional success. To those nosy people, I would gently ask them to live their own stories, and leave me to mine.

A great friend helped me remember this I Need to stop sharing my life with nosey people.It's more important to protect my real friends.

Truths that are fact

* fact of all facts.

It has always seemed strange to me ... the things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first, they love the produce of the second. - John Steinbeck, Cannery Row #books #quotes

The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck was first published 75 years ago.
