Self-Respect

 

That you may retain your self-respect,

 it is better to displease the people

 by doing what you know is right,

 than to temporarily please them by

 doing what you know is wrong.

~William J. H. Boetcker~

 distinguish between 
the virtue and the vice
 of obedience.

Inconceivable

 
What sunshine is to flowers,
 smiles are to humanity. 
These are but trifles, to be sure;
 but, scattered along life’s pathway,
 the good they do is inconceivable.
~Joseph Addison

Illusion

 
 Normal is an illusion.
 What is normal for the spider
 is chaos for the fly.

Each and Every

 
Be kind,
 be all sympathy,
 for each and every 
human being
 is forced to fight 
against himself.

May Lead

 
Do not go where the path may lead, 
go instead where there is no path
 and leave a trail.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~
