What the World Needs

The world needs men

- who cannot be bought;
- whose word is their bond;
- who put character above wealth;
- who possess opinions and a will;
- who are larger than their vocations;
- who do not hesitate to take chances;
- who will not lose their individuality in a crowd;
- who will be as honest in small things as in great things;
- who will not make no compromise with wrong;
- whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires;
- who will not say they do it "because everybody does it";
- who are true to their friends through good report and evil report, 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 not unpopular,
who can say "no" with emphasis, although all the rest of the world says "yes!"

It's a Man's World

It's a man's world. Is it? Well...

Men have a big stake in this world to run, be joyful, and bewilder over their role in its daily operations... The government (or companies or institutions) don't really run the world. Men do! The kind of men running this world, and their homes, have a lot to do with peace, prosperity and progress in human affairs. This blog is dedicated to us men, our achievement as individuals, family leaders, and builders of our society.
