Pearls of Wisdom

East

The thought manifests as the word; The word manifests as the deed; The deed develops into habit; And habit hardens into character. So watch the thought and its ways with care, And let it spring from love born out of concern for all beings.

~ Buddha

High-minded actions, ideal qualities, and sacred thoughts are basic foundations of character.

~ Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Only the wisest and the stupidest of men never change.

~ Confucius

Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.

~ Jesus Christ

Refrain from doing ill; for one all powerful reason, lest our children should copy our misdeeds; we are all to prone to imitate whatever is base and depraved.

~ Juvenal

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but were he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

~ Marin Luter King

Every man alone is sincere; at the entrance of a second person hypocrisy begins.

Man is not the sum of what he has but the totality of what he does not yet have, of what he might have.

Your Character Ethic and Personality Ethic

The elements of Personality Ethic, such as communication skills, influence strategies, and positive thinking, are essential for success, but these are secondary, not primary traits. "You can pick up quick, easy techniques that may work in short-term situations. But secondary traits alone have no permanent worth in long-term relationships. Eventually, if there isn't deep integrity and fundamental character strength, the challenges of life will cause true motives to surface and human relationships failure will replace short-term success," says Kenneth Blanchard.1
