THE WORLD NEEDS LEADERS

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 say they do it “because everybody else does it”;

who are true to their friends through good report and an evil report, in adversity as well as in prosperity;

who do not believe that shrewdness, cunning and hard-headedness    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”.
