  1. Great words to live by. How tragic that neither our schools (nor many families) see the value in passing on such guidance

  2. Trying to live by these principles is harder than is apparent, and the cost has been very high in my life.

  3. This is so simple and easy to do, yet too often, living by these words is difficult when so many people only look out for themselves and do not care for anyone else. I read this to a friend and his response was, “Oh no…that will only make me appear weak!” How tragic and true for some. As for me, I try to be a person of character and teach it to my family and students. I always remind them that “Yes, character DOES count!”

  4. We often need these kinds of reminders.
    We go through life displaying our emotions as a response to what’s in front of us. Michael Josephson’s quotes tells me to stop & think of how others are affected by my responses.
    Thank you for this.
