Intelligent Selfishness

By Zig Ziglar

He wore tennis shoes, $2 pants, no glove, and carried a $20 golf bag and a $70 set of clubs.  He was pot-bellied, had long sideburns, played with a wide stance and a strong right grip.  He held his hands high and away, used about a three-quarter swing and had an open stance.  (That’s not the way the P.G.A. golf pros teach the game.)

Help is Near

Former Notre Dame Football coach Lou Holtz tells the story of the fellow who was driving on a slippery country road when he slid into a ditch.  He walked to a farm house a short distance away and approached the old farmer who received him warmly.  When the motorist described his problem, the farmer stated that he did not know if he could help him or not, but he would do what he could.  He explained that his old . . .
