This month our value word is HONESTY.
Honesty is demonstrated by what we say and by what we do. It impacts our entire life; our jobs, our relationships, our own feelings about ourselves and the actions we take. It can move us forward and allow us to feel good about what we do.
The businessman and author W. Clement Stone came up with a quote which sums up how important honesty is.
“Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity.”
Last week was World Book Week and we have listened to and learnt poems in school. Here is a poem all about honesty.
It Is Better
“It is better to lose with a conscience clean
Than to win with a trick unfair;
It is better to fail, and to know you’ve been,
Whatever the prize was, square.
Than to claim the joy of a far-off goal
And the cheer of the standers-by,
And to know down deep in your inmost soul,
A cheat you must live and die.”
