Your worth consists in what you are and not in what you have. —Thomas A. Edison
Thomas is making a distinction between what we are and what we have. The possessions we have are the result of what we are. Therefore, what we do is an expression of what we are. We earn what we have by what we do or what somebody else did. There is no such thing is a free lunch because everything is merited. We have to make our way through the world by doing. We can’t take everything we possess everywhere, but we can take our abilities everywhere we go. Our self-worth is where we will find our self-confidence. Self-reliance is where we build confidence that is where our treasure lies. Things are not where we find our self-worth.
