The World Needs a Few Good 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 make no compromise with wrong;
* whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires;
* who will not say they do it” because everybody else 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 unpopular;
* who can say “no” with emphasis, although all the rest of the world says “yes.”

Charles Swindoll, Living Above the Level of Mediocrity, pp.107-8
