Someone sent me this today; I don’t know if it’s true, but I thought it was inspiring just the same. I’m transcribing verbatim:
- “Politics without principles,
- “Pleasure without commitment,
- “Wealth without work,
- “Wisdom without character,
- “Business without morals,
- “Science without humanity,
- “Prayer without charity.
“Life has shown me that people are courteous if I am courteous; people are sad if I am sad; people love me if I love them; people are mean if I hate them; people smile if I smile; people scowl if I am scowling; that the world is happy if I am happy; that people get mad if I am mad; that people are grateful if I show gratitude. Life is like a mirror; if I smile, the mirror returns the smile. The same attitude I have towards life is what life will have towards me.
“He who wishes to be loved, must love first.”
