Why Not Me? - Mindy Kaling

This quote was added by manalchowd
People talk about confidence without ever bringing up hard work. That's a mistake. I know I sound like some sour older spinster on Downton Abbey who has never felt a man's touch and whose heart has turned to stone, but I don't understand how you could have self-confidence if you don't do the work... I have never, ever, ever, met a high confident person and successful person who is not what a movie would call a 'workaholic'. Because confidence is like respect; you have to earn it.

The British putting the ' or the " before the . almost always screws me up. but i suppose they think the same thing about our ." or .' order. Doesn't mean i'm not going to complain
