Quotable - Be cool

"Coolness to the pizza delivery dude is a practice in equality. My measurement as a human being, my worth, is the pride I take in performing my job -- any job -- and the respect with which I treat others. I am the equal of the world not because of the car I drive, the size of the TV I own, the weight I can bench press, or the calculus equations I can solve. I am the equal to all I meet because of the kindness in my heart. And it all starts here -- with the pizza delivery dude."

~ Sarah Adams, from "Be Cool to the Pizza Dude" in This I Believe.

Cheryl - If you a moment, click on the title of the essay and read the whole thing (don't worry, it's short). You'll love how she builds to this quote.
