Hi Everyone! In reading through some quotes the past few days, I
have paused and stopped to wonder. One quote I read left its message:
If something is heavy enough to insult the Soul, pay attention. Aristotle wrote
"Men acquire a particular quality by constantly acting in a particular way."
And this can be positive or negative; good or bad.
And I wonder: We are setting an example to our little children, our youths,
teens, young adults. Even our wise little toddlers have picked up the spirit,
language, and atmosphere. It is daily in the air and the air waves. Time to
make some serious changes...As adults, we have a responsibility to the
generations following us. Anyway, I stopped to think how each of us, how I
in my life might help to raise the vibration - find a higher road, a more loving,
kinder, unified way. 'As I see it' - using Lou Ludwig's familiar phrase - we
are teachers, we set examples...many eyes are watching and listening to us.
"Don't cheat people just to get ahead.
Don't steal someone else's opportunity.

process." ~Edelweiss '11
"The foundation stones for a balanced success are Honesty, Character,

to questions of honesty, temperance, kindness and industry." ~Billy Graham

"The high road is always respected. Honesty and integrity are
always rewarded." ~Scott Hamilton
"It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of
common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me
forever ineligible for public office." ~H. L. Mencken
"Life comes down to honesty and doing what's right. That's what's
most important." ~Bob Feller
"In looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities:
Integrity, Intelligence, and energy.
And if they don't have the first, the other two will kill you." ~Warren Buffet
