The 07/25/13 Joy Jar

25 Jul

Moi read this story, Hassel Junior Barber, NY Homeless Man, Finds Wallet Containing $485 And Does ‘The Right Thing’
and she began thinking about how some folk have the character to do the right thing even when it is costly. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is doing the right thing even when it costs one.

Initiative is doing the right thing without being told.
Victor Hugo

“Doing whats right is never easy … You think you’re right, but you lose track of what you were trying to do all along and then there’s blood and screaming and death.Doing a bad thing for a good end just sours the good.”
Janice Hardy, Blue Fire

“If you boil it down, just because someone else does the wrong thing we are not exempt from doing what’s right.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

“Doing what’s right is seldom easy.”
Janice Hardy, The Shifter

“They’re certainly entitled to think that, and they’re entitled to full respect for their opinions… but before I can live with other folks I’ve got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.”
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters”
Albert Einstein

“Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

“I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.”
Frederick Douglass

“I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to
succeed, but I am bound to live up to what light I have.”
Abraham Lincoln

“Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
