Fit For More

Be fit for more than the thing you are now doing.  Let everyone know that you have a reserve in yourself -- that you have more power than you are now using.  If you are not too large for the place you occupy, you are too small for it.

-- James A. Garfield (1831 - 1881), 20th president of the United States of America in 1881, and the second U.S. president to be assassinated, "Elements of Success", as published in President Garfield and education: Hiram college memorial (1882), compiled by B. A. Hinsdale, p. 327
