Credit where it’s due

“[Ronald Reagan] achieved a lot in his life because he was principled. But he also achieved a lot because he didn’t care who got the credit.”

Kevin McCarthy at the unveiling of the new statue of Former US President Ronald Reagan in Grosvenor Square, London this week.

I haven’t got much to say about this – partly because I think the quote speaks for itself, and partly because I’m tired and not really thinking very coherently.

Apologies for the lack of activity on this blog recently. I’m changing jobs and the transition seems to have left me devoid of both words and time to write (and possibly thoughts, too, but I’m hoping they’ll return soon…!).

If you want to be sure you don’t miss anything I do write, why not sign up to receive my posts by e-mail – see the box in the top right-hand corner of the page. Normal service will be resumed when I’ve got something to say. Meanwhile, I’ll leave you with one very brief thought about that quotation:

What could be achieved in the world if you genuinely didn’t care whether you or someone else got the credit?
