“My basic principle is that you don’t make decisions because they are easy; you don’t make them because they are cheap; you don’t make them because they’re popular; you make them because they’re right.”

Making decisions is important and you make decisions for everything. Whether it is for deciding on what to eat or deciding whether to do an action or something, you’re always making decisions. Decisions are an important thing to acknowledge because you should make the ones that benefit you and you as a person. For example, if someone drops their change and coins right in front of you, you have the choice of stopping and helping them pick it up, or you can just simply walk away. You should always look at the aspects of your decision and how it will affect you and your morals. Helping them pick up the money will make you feel good and encourage your morals within yourself. Always making the right decisions can help others too. It helps others by maybe wanting to follow your encouragement to do good. Make sure to choose the right decisions in life that benefit you as a person and your morals to always choose the right.

“I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes.”

Doing right in life is what leads to the good life. The good life is where everybody wants to be. To get there, you need to be true and good. Be polite, have manners, and be good to your neighbors. An example of a good person would be Abraham Lincoln. He has done many great things in his life. For example, Abraham once borrowed a book from his neighbor and some water accidentally fell on it and ruined it. Lincoln apologized and worked for 3 days in a field to pay his neighbor back. Abraham also worked as a lawyer. When he knew that a client was poor, he would charge little to no fee for them. One more great thing that he did was that Abraham Lincoln worked for 4 years to pay back his debt when him and his partner’s business failed. Abraham Lincoln is a great example of being an amazing person and being good and true.

“They’re only truly great who are truly good.”

Those who are truly good inside, are truly great. Being good inside means to not be selfish or rude inside. Beautiful, good people are kind, caring, generous, etc. People like that are truly great and amazing people. Being good inside is something our society now needs big time. People have lost their manners inside and out. People treat each other rudely with no respect. George Chapman is someone who society should listen to. Like a middle school in Michigan. The football team has a great heart.

“I hated poverty. Poverty is more of a choice than anything else, and I can change that (poverty). It depends upon how hard I want to work, and decided that I would change it.”

-Dr. Ben Carson-

Poverty is a very big problem in the world. We, as people, should help end it. What we should begin doing to try to lessen it, is to encourage others to work for what they want. We should help encourage them to reach for their goals instead of giving up. Giving up could be some causes of poverty. Some people could have gave up in their dreams and goals which could have caused them to go into poverty. As a community, we should try to help stop poverty and help others in poverty. As Ben Carson says, we should encourage those on poverty by helping them and giving them support. Many people see poverty as something irrelevant but it’s not. In many places, not only in the country, but the world, suffer from poverty.

“Character Matters Most.”

-Dale Murphy-

Character is more important than other things in life. Character is you as a person. Your personality, along with traits. This is what matters more than other things. Your character can be nice, kind, and supportive, which are important traits to have. Character matters most because it’s whether you do right or wrong. Whether you do good, or do bad. This is important to ask yourself before committing any actions. Is it the right thing to do? If not and you choose the right thing to do, that’s great. Where as if you realize its wrong and you still decide to go through with it, that’s what matters. That is what needs to be fixed. Dale mentions this quote because people need to see their personalities, their characters. Not many people see personalities as much anymore. It’s important to recognize a person’s character to see if you would want them in your life or if they are a bad influence. Character is what matters most.

“Great beauty, great strength, and great riches are really and truly of no great use; a right heart exceeds all.”

People think that having good looks, being beautiful, and having money are all that matters in their life. It’s sad to see that society believes and thinks that now. In reality, none of that actually matters. Having good looks and a nice body doesn’t matter. Having an abundance of money doesn’t matter. Just because someone has all of those things, does not mean that they are more superior than others. In reality, a truly good heart is what really matters. Kindness, respectfulness, manners, and doing good and doing right is what matters. They’re all characteristics of a good person. A person who believes that they are better than others just because of what they have, is no CTR person. A true CTR person has a right heart with a good personality. More people should begin to see what actually matters, other than what really doesn’t.

Kindness is one of the most important things in life. It’s a great personality trait to have. Kindness can cause others to have more respect towards you as a person and companion. Being kind helps a person’s view towards themselves and others. Being kind to others can include opening doors for others, pulling out a chair for others to sit, saying please and thank you, and many more. Doing actions like these let others believe that there are still good people around and in the world. It can help others by making their day or giving them a smile. If you do that, it can give you a smile as well. Kindness is really something this world needs more of.
