The World needs people… Who cannot be bought; Whose word is their bond; Who put character above wealth; Who possess opinions and a will; Who are larger than their vocations; Who do not hesitate to take chances; Who do not lose their individuality in a crowd; Who will be as honest in small things as in great things; Who will make no compromise with wrong; Whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires; 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 the rest of the world says “yes”. ~Ted w. Engstrom, from Motivation to last a lifetime.
