Are We Better than That?
Tonight AiraBongco said “. . . it’s an issue on what a person values: principles or money.”
I know. But it’s not like it’s been all honey up until now. I don’t know anyone who’s been living easy. I can’t imagine you’ve had it much differently. Do you know anyone who’s life hasn’t been hard won?
We use easy to describe some other guy’s life not our own.
Yeah, I worry about how things came this bad and where they’re going. The story is complicated, on the other hand, nothing new happens where humans are concerned. The good keep being good and the bad, well you know. People keep doing the same people stuff again and again.
Didn’t we see misbehavior like this on the playground and survive it then? We’ve made it out with self-respect in tact and our feet on the ground before.
Warren Buffet, one of the richest men in the world, didn’t gain the confidence of million dollar handshakes by being untrustworthy. His businesses were built on his principles.
I guess I look at it this way, principles will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no principles.
Maybe we should write that on a wall.
Do we have to pick one — money or principles?
