altogether secular, but still fitting

THINGS THAT REALLY MATTER:
- growth
- relationships
- loyalty
- small moments
- timely decisions
- doing what you enjoy
- life's early lessons
- the right team (peers)
- confronting reality
- doing the right thing

* from DOING WHAT MATTERS by James M. Kilts

if she did say this...then i dig the message
your thoughts???

"Every man gives his life for what he believes; every woman gives her life for what she believes. Sometimes people believe in little or nothing, [and yet] they give up their lives to that little or nothing. One life is all we have, and we live it as we believe in living it, and then it’s gone. But to surrender what you are, and live without belief—that’s more terrible than dying—more terrible than dying young”
(Joan of Arc, 1431)

i like this one a lot too:

"Does adversity build character?...It does not. Almost all people can stand adversity of one sort or another. If you want to test a person's character, give him power...Power corrupts. Trust me on this. And because power corrupts, humanity's need for those in power to be of high character increases as the importance of the position of leadership increases...We are discussing character, correct? Not intelligence. Some of the most intelligent leaders in history have brought disasters to their nations because intelligence is powerless to modify character. Great leadership is a product of great character. And this is why character matters." - Abraham Lincoln to Joan of Arc

"Now, more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature...If (100 years from now) the next centennial does not find us a great nation...it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces." - James A. Garfield, 1876

well said, jimmy!
