Great


No one has ever made himself great by showing how small someone else is. Irvin Himmel

Okay I love the quote and from what I can find, a fifteen minutes worth of google-fu. All I can tell you about Irvin Himmel is he does not have a wikepedia page, he may or may not be a member of Somerville Rd Church Of Christ in Alabama.

But I will tell you this, people love this quote, anytime you type Himmel’s name, someone seems to be quoting it in an article somewhere. Well since I can’t find any definitive information on Mr. Himmel, let me just say thanks, I enjoy the sentiment, meaning and simple but poignant message of those fourteen words.

Witty observation, disparaging remark, question for A.A., well this is your chance.
