It is popularly supposed that a greater prosperity for individuals or nations can only come through a political and social reconstruction. This cannot be true apart from the practice of the moral virtues in the individuals that comprise a nation.
Better laws and social conditions will always follow a higher realization of morality among the individuals of a community, but no legal enactment can give prosperity to nor, it cannot prevent the ruin of, a man or a nation that has become lax and decadent in the pursuit and practice of virtue.
To find moral principles is to have found prosperity, greatness, truth, and is, therefore to be strong, valiant, joyful, and free.
Word of the week – Morality – principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior.
Ask yourself: Where have you found greater prosperity?
Speaking With a Purpose: “I help you bridge the gap between … Where you are versus where you want to be.” My ultimate goal – help you become a better you!
