Inspiration: Men and Women of Character

The world needs men and women. . .

* who cannot be bought;

* whose word is their bond;

* who put character above wealth;

* who possess opinions and a strong will;

* who are larger than their vocations;

* who do not hesitate to take risks;

* who will not lose their individuality in a crowd;

* who will be as honest in small affairs as in greater;

* who will make no compromise with wrong;

* whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires;

* who will not say they do it "because everybody else does it;"

* who are true to their friends through good and bad, in adversity as well as in prosperity;

* who do not believe that shrewdness, cunning, and hardheadedness are the best qualities for winning success;

* who are not ashamed or afraid to stand for the truth when it is unpopular;

* who can say "no" with emphasis, although all the rest of the world says "yes."
