I believe in love, honor, and respect. I have often wondered how to describe myself so here we go. When he can look out over the rivers, the hills, and the far horizon with a sense of his own littleness in the vast scheme of things, and yet have faith, hope and courage… which is the root of every virtue. When he knows that down in his heart every man is as noble, as vile, as divine, as diabolic, and as lonely as himself, and seeks to know, to forgive, and to love his fellowman. When he knows to sympathize with men in their sorrow, yea, even in their sins, knowing that each man fights a hard fight against any odds. When he has learned how to make friends and keep them, and above all, to keep friends with himself. When he can be happy and high-minded amid the meaner drudgeries of life. When no voice of distress reaches his ears in vain and no hand seeks his aid without response. When he knows how to pray, how to love, how to hope. When he keeps faith with himself, with his fellow man, with his God. In his heart a bit of a song… glad to live, but not afraid to die. Such a man is who I strive to be.
