Nobility, superiority, and martial arts rank

Occasionally the topic of rank and the value of rank and whether or not to concern oneself with rank bubbles through the martial blogosphere. Today I ran across a great quote that speaks to that subject...
The truth is that there is nothing noble in being superior to somebody else. The only real nobility is in being superior to your former self.  Whitney Young (1921 - 1971) US civil rights leader
