“It’s hard for an empty sack to stand upright.” ~ Benjamin Franklin
The ability to justify a particular decision isn’t the test for whether or not it’s the right decision. Because anything can be “justified.” People even justify murder. The real test is whether or not you’re telling yourself the truth.
Be a person of character. A person committed to doing the right thing. Think in terms of how much good you can do, instead how much you can get for yourself.
