Stay True to Your Own Values

 


Reputation is what other people know about you.
Honor is what you know about yourself.
- Lois McMaster Bujold

If you doubt the virtue in self-honor,
remember what the flight attendant says,
"Put your own oxygen mask on first."
You are of no use to anyone else
if you have not taken care of your own needs first -
this includes your own emotional,
as well as physical, well-being.
In addition, your greatest value to your children,
your family, your friends, and your community
is the example you set, leading a great life that inspires
those around you to emulate your being.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Self-respect is often mistaken for arrogance
when in reality it is the opposite.
When we can recognize all our good qualities
as well as or faults with neutrality,
we can start to appreciate ourselves
as we would a dear friend
and experience the comfortable inner glow of respect.
- Osho

This above all, to thine own self be true.
- William Shakespeare
[Be true to your own values - live an honorable life.]

Our Actions, Not Our Words, Define Us

 


Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,
ye have done it unto me.
- Matthew 25:40

Before you speak to me about your religion,
   first show it to me in how you treat other people;
before you tell me how much you love your God,
   show me in how much you love all His children;
before you preach to me of your passion for your faith,
   teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors.
In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell
   as in how you choose to live and give.
- Cory Booker

We do not need to proselytize
either by our speech or by our writing.
We can only do so really with our lives.
Let our lives be open books for all to study.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

A good example is the best sermon.
- Benjamin Franklin

No man stands so tall as when he stoops to help a child.

Your example is far more influential and inspiring
than any words of instruction, or threats,
or even words of encouragement.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If your actions inspire others to dream more,
learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
