Character Poems

Character Poems


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;

  • who will not lose their individuality in a crowd;

  • 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;

  • who do not believe that shrewdness, cunning, and hardheadedness are the best qualities for winning success;

  • who are not ashamed or afraid to stand for the truth when it is unpopular;

  • who can say "no" with emphasis, although all the rest of the world says "yes."

It is not what we eat

but what we digest

that makes us strong;

not what we gain

but what we save

that make us rich;

not what we read

but what we remember

that makes us learned;

and not what we profess

but what we practice

that gives us Integrity.
