I can't remember if I have used this exact photo in the past postings, but I like it, so here
it is again. I haven't posted for a week, have been traveling for the consulting side of
blueknowser. I was on a flight last week when I met a fellow Bluenoser
and she commented that Nova Scotians tend not to support people who are successful. It reminded me of this quote from Edgar Watson Howe
"if you succeed in life, you must do it in spite of the efforts of others to pull you down. There is nothing in the idea that people are willing to help those who help themselves. People are willing to help a man who can't help himself, but as soon as a man is able to help himself, and does it, they join in making his life as miserable as possible."
I enter this quote into the post because it shows that the trait is not a Nova Scotian exclusive. Howe was
a novelist and newspaper man in the Mid-west of the USA in the early twentieth century... probably never met a Bluenoser.
