Success is what the memory carries that makes you smile warmly in your old age. That’s because everyone justifies their failures and nobody intentionally makes mistakes. So we carry with us the memory of pleasant relationship encounters. My brother married a Chicano women and one day we were talking about our improverished youth. My brother’s…

At first sight, Booker T. Washington’s quote, ‘I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed’, sounds like a typical example of a sentence that sounds paradoxical because of trying to…

I agree with Booker Washington’s opinion that success should be measured not so much by results as by the character of the striver. It always irritates me when I find people admiring well-known personages like Donald Trump and Bill Gates, both of which started from not very modest surroundings and have achieved much. Bill Gates…

If we take into consideration the history behind Booker T. Washington’s statement and the era in which he made it, his point of view becomes that much more understandable. How many obstacles did Washington face during his life? Probably many more than the people taking this test have faced. I think in today’s world we…

Often, people are measured by far they have climbed in their careers. The higher they climb, the more successful they are. However, we wouldn’t determine who had won a race by simple time measurements if they had run different distances, and we wouldn’t compare the time of a 100 meter sprinter against a 100 meter…

We take it for granted nowadays that we have to succeed in life. Yes, people argue about what really constitutes ‘success’ — is it personal fulfillment? A lucrative career? But underlying all these debates is the shared conviction that our lives should have some purpose. From this point of view, it is hard to disagree…

‘I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position one has reached in life as by the obstacles he has overcome while trying to succeed.’ — Booker T. Washington According to Booker T. Washington, success is a relative measure, not an absolute. Becoming a bank president, or even President…

Booker T. Washington claimed that the true measure of success is not the position one reaches in life, but rather the obstacles overcome along the way to success. This idea is not unique to Washington, but occurs in some form in many aspects of our society. The myth of the ‘self-made man’ is one of…

I agree with Washington’s statement. Success can come easily, but it is a shallow victory, for when hard work and struggle are a necessary part of success, the success itself has more meaning. As a child, I lived a charmed life. My parents, though not millionaires, were certainly very comfortable, and I, as a result,…
