"People may not remember exactly what you did, or what you said, but they will always remember how you made them feel."

I found this attributed to Dr. Thomas L. Garthwaite, Under Secretary for Health. Dr Garthwaite used this quote in a speech for an annual Awards Lunch for Episcopal.

Here's an excerpt from the speech...


The Cab Ride

That is the only webpage that associates this story with Mr. Garthwaite, and it introduces the "cab driver/cab ride" story as an "excerpt from his speech."
It appears to be a reputable webpage, but it sure does not look like an excerpt from a speech; unless Mr. Garthwaite stood there and read the whole story to the audience.

I saw it also referred to as a "comment by Steven Krushen," whoever that is.

Hundreds upon hundreds simply cite this quote this to "source unknown," and I think I would leave it at that.

And, Roze, that was a great find. Nicely done.

The Cab Ride story (is all over the Internet)

In years to come, a child may forget what you taught them.
But will always remember how you made them feel.

Slightly longer version:
"People may not remember exactly what you did, or what you said, but they will always remember how you made them feel. Remember what you do echoes in eternity."

Maya Angelou. The original says, "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

The exact words are "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."from Maya Angelou, Professor of English Literature Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, NC

I checked out the above site and they do indeed attribuite to Carl Buechner, however I too thought I had read this from one of Mr Garthwaite's speeches. Maybe more than one person came up with the same quote!

It is actually a quote from the poet, Maya Angelou.

I still like Eleanor Roosevelt's quote "No one can make an adult feel inferior with their consent. What say you? Michael

The Gift of Encouragement
Well, Michael, your post led me on a journey of discovery again. You must read this paper
http://www.franklinchurch.us/sermons/011710.pdf

“We all have different gifts, based on the grace given us… If it is encouraging, devote yourself to encouraging others.” Romans 12:6-8

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” 1 Thess. 5:11

“A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.” Proverbs 11:25
quote:
When she was a very young child Eleanor Roosevelt’s mother called her “granny" because she saw the child as plain and awkward, rather than as beautiful and socially graceful as herself. Eleanor is described by many biographers as having a life long struggle with shyness and insecurity which can partially be tied back to her mother’s harsh criticism. Nonetheless, in her autobiography, This is My Story (1937), Eleanor Roosevelt wrote “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

Perfect timing Jon and refreshing sermon and fyi's about Eleanor.

Reminds me of an Irish Proverb. "The first step is one third of the journey."

Happy Holiday Sir Jon and to all at Quoteland.

With sincere respect and appreciation.

Michael
