If I Had a Bigger Drum
“We are all born with the drum-major instinct,” writes Marjorie Lewis Lloyd. “What baby, from the moment he makes his premiere performance, is not the center of attention? And what child does not try to keep it that way? If the real world does not have a big enough spotlight, he will turn to the world of fantasy.” “Do we ever quite grow out of it? Why do we want to paint or preach or sing? To help people, of course. Who would dare to suggest any other motive? Yet praise never makes us unhappy—even if we don’t deserve it. We like the sound of it even when we don’t believe it. It doesn’t bother us at all unless we hear too much directed to someone else.” Read this book, one of Marjorie Lewis Lloyd’s best, and you’ll learn the reason behind this desire for attention and praise. Moreover, you’ll find a ready solution to cope with the temptation.
