A Reflection called ‘Needed Men and Women of Character’ ~Author Unknown


The world needs men and women who cannot be bought; whose word is their bond; who put character above wealth; who possess opinions and a strong will; who are larger than their vocations; who do not hesitate to take risks and who will not lose their individuality in a crowd.

The world needs men and women who will be as honest in small affairs as in greater; who will make no compromise with wrong; whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires; who will not say they do it “because everybody else does it”; who are true to their friends through good and bad, in adversity as well as in prosperity.

The world needs men and women who do not believe that shrewdness, cunning and hard headedness are the best qualities for winning success; who are not ashamed or afraid to stand for the truth when it is unpopular and who can say “no” with emphasis, although the rest of the world says “yes”.

The world needs men and women who are willing to say “I believe”, who are not afraid to say that their faith in a loving God is important to them and who are happy to say that it makes a difference in their life.
