Settling for too little

The sin that will cleave to all the posterity of Adam and Eve is, that they have not done as well as they knew how.

Brigham Young
Discourses of Brigham Young, sel. John A. Widtsoe (1954), 89.

 

The biggest human temptation is … to settle for too little.

Thomas Merton, as quoted in Forbes (4 August 1980)
