Goodness Trumps Greatness

Mora than being great, be good.

Intelligence and cunning in someone who is not, first, a good person, is dangerous. Talent and skills can be used to oppress. But with goodness, those same things can be used to help the oppressed.

Riches and resources—can be collected and kept locked by the greedy, or it can be donated, shared by the good man.

It isn't what we have or what we can do that makes us who we are. That makes us better than others. It is what we choose to do with what we are given. It is the values that guide us.
