Blog Quote #567

Here's blog quote #567...
"A man's achievements are often discussed, but seldom the principles by which he lives."
-Thomas Kempis-

We often inquire of people being brave, handsome, rich, a good writer, clever, a fine singer, or a hard worker.

I often wondered why this is. Shouldn't we place more-- on character, integrity, patience, morals, and who is behind the surface of the (wo)man?

As Coach Wooden says-- "There is a big difference between character and reputation. Reputation is what people think you are, and character is WHO you are." Don't worry so much about the reputation, and concentrate on rock solid character.

A suggestion: Let's all look inward-- for the real, genuine substance of a person--  rather than just the fluff and surface stuff.

That's my view...what say you?
