Taylor shares…”Work hard and be nice”
“Edward Gibbon is considered the father of modern history. He wrote, among other things, The Rise and Fall of The Roman Empire which is considered the first “modern” history book for its use of citations and primary source material. In a 1941 essay, V.S. Pritchett wrote about Gibbon, he took note of the English historian’s seemingly ceaseless industry. Even when he was in the middle of military service, he managed to find the time to continue his scholarly work, toting around manuscripts in his pack. Pritchett writes, “Sooner or later the great men turn out to be all alike. They never stop working. They never lose a minute. It is very depressing.” I am unsure if it is depressing, but I am increasingly sure it is true. A successful life would seem to be many thousands of days following the “magic recipe” Conan O’Brien offered for success: “work hard and be nice.”
