Leadership Quote: Oliver Wendell Holmes

“Every calling is great when greatly pursued.”

This quotation came from either Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., (1809-1894), American physician, writer and poet, or his son, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., (1841-1935), US Supreme Court Justice.  It has been variously attributed to both.

I think this is a profound statement.  The greatness of our life’s work does not depend so much on what so-called “status” it might bear or others may think of it, but on the intensity, passion and diligence we give it.
