Always do right. This will gratify some people & astonish the rest ~ Mark Twain

imagesK96UB70DAnd some may even call you stupid… (My addition to Twain’s quote)

There are times when I’ve had the opportunity to do what was right and didn’t take it.

These occurrences have occasionally haunted me.

I regret my actions in these circumstances and have learned from them.

There are also times when I’ve taken the high road and did the right thing.Β Sometimes I’ve even been called stupid and became the topic of ridicule. At other times, no one but myself and God even knew.

I never regret my actions in these circumstances.

Doing the right thing is rarely the easy thing.

Doing the right thing rarely results in a chorus of accolades from your peers.

In fact, doing the right thing may promote someone else and relegate you to the background.

And occasionally, doing the right thing may even make you look foolish.

The odd time, however, doing the right thing can result in others’ appreciation and inspire them to do good.


Do the right thing, even if you’re the only one who knows you’ve done it.
