Quote of the Week, 1/11/2020, below:
H. Jackson Brown, Jr. once said, “Our character is what we do when we think no one is looking.”
For more about H. Jackson Brown, Jr., please refer to the excerpt from wikipedia, in italics, below:
Harriett Jackson Brown Jr. is an American author best known for his inspirational book, Life’s Little Instruction Book, which was a New York Times bestseller (1991–1994). Its sequel Life’s Little Instruction Book: Volume 2 also made it to the same best seller list in 1993.
Brown was born in 1941, in Middle Tennessee, where he still lives as of 2018. Before becoming a writer, he acted as a creative director of an advertising agency in Nashville. He graduated from Emory University in 1962 and was a member of Sigma Chi fraternity. In 1991 he was honored as a “Significant Sig”, an award given by the organization to its notable members.
Brown first published A Father’s Book of Wisdom, which was quickly followed by P.S. I Love You, a collection of sayings and observations from his father and mother. The latter contains the famous quote on travel (see below) which is often misquoted as having been said by Mark Twain. Both were very popular and led to Life’s Little Instruction Book, which was originally written as a going-away present for his college-bound son, Adam. This book contained 511 reminders about “how to live a happy and rewarding life” and became a best-seller worldwide. It has logged more than two years on the New York Times best-seller list, including more than a year at the number one spot. Life’s Little Instruction Book was the first book to ever occupy the number one spot on the New York Times best-seller list in both paperback and hardback formats simultaneously. Live and Learn and Pass It On followed and also became a New York Times best-seller. “Live and Learn and Pass It On,” was co-authored with his wife Rosemary C. Brown, who is herself an author with books like Rosemary Brown’s Big Kitchen Instruction Book.
