Quotabit 27. Measure of Success (07.09.2014.)
“The level of Success is generally expressed as
The distance between the base of the pyramid of society and
One’s position towards the top of the pyramid.
The greater the distance and
The greater the number of people below towards the base,
The greater the success.
As one climbs further towards the top,
The area and number of people around get lesser and lesser”
