We should condemn others for their laziness, dishonesty, or betrayal
We should treat each other with respect and acceptance

We must never stop learning
The intellectual resources in America are all highly developed
Personal development and the light of our personalities result from keeping our minds sharp through good literature, uplifting entertainment, learning new things, and acquiring new skills.

The soft answer
Never in the history of the world has there been a more profound need for leaders of principle to step forward.
In leadership, in standing for principle, there is loneliness
Men and women of integrity who live with their convictions are dreadfully miserable.
We cannot stand on the sidelines and watch the play between the forces of good and evil; we must become leaders in speaking up on behalf of worthy causes and principles.
The distance between mediocrity and excellence is small; we would all do well to walk a higher road of excellence.
There is nothing in all the world so satisfying as a task or performance well done.
Tremendous is our opportunity to reach beyond the hoped-for goal of wealth and worldly success to build and strengthen others, to relieve suffering, to aid in making the world a better place, to be as a light.
Tremendous is our potential for leading out and standing up, in every arena of our lives, for the virtues that will make our individual lives, our families, and our society strong and vibrant.
None of the above.
