Quotes for Men to Live By #4

This is a bit of a cynical quote from the first President of the USA, but Good ol’ G.W. was certainly insightful.  Everyone has a price, and few, strong-willed men are able to stand against it.  This is a quote of two tales.

The first lesson is about being principled: a man, a real man, should always honor his principles and what he stands for.   No matter the bribe or offer, stand up for what you believe in.

Lesson two: everybody has a price.   A million, a billion, it doesn’t matter.  Be aware that money talks and people out there, in the real world, can be and may have been bought.  Be prepared.

Money isn’t everything.  Be honest about where it comes from, and stick to your guns.
