I read this recently in Dr. Norman Campbell’s Blog.
Too good not to pass along:
George Washington said, “Few men have enough virtue to withstand the highest bidder.”
Yet that’s what we must do to develop the kind of character that will sustain us.
It’s not easy to do the right thing when:
(a) It will cost you;
(b) The wrong thing is more practical;
(c) No one but you will know.
It’s in those moments that your character becomes strong.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Cowardice asks: is it safe? Consensus asks: is it popular? Conscience [character] asks: is it right?”
