Be True to Your Work, Your Word, and Your Friend. Henry David Thoreau
Mr. Thoreau has it right. There’s nothing more important than those three things. Whatever your work, whether for school, job, or hobby–do it well and with all your heart. Your word is who you are–never say something you can’t support or hurt someone. Words can be like daggers. Your friends are your support system. Have friends you can count on, not simply people to have around you.
Work, word, and friend–the trifecta of a good life. Sonja
