"Dignity Is liba! We Use To
Conceal Oar Ignorance"
is Elbert Hubbard's definition of the
word dlge.Iiy.
Unquestionably Elbert is correct,
and every thinking person will agrea
with him-
Think of the people with dignity
and count those having it naturally
He who has it naturally, combined with
abllitr. is a great suoftfs in life.
Those with assumed dignity are well,
they are understood and discounted
by the public.
We've no dignify, natural or as
sumed, and if its use was attempted
by us the public would discount it.
Lt the public estimate ns correctly;
give us credit for a thorough Knowl
edge of the photograph business; for
doing work at reasonable prices.
Tears of experience in this business
exclusively entitles us to it.
