Men and Women of Character

Source Unknown

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."
