“Always do the right thing. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.” ~Mark Twain (1835-1910), American author & humorist
I know, I know. We do the right thing because it’s the right thing to do.
But I do so like Mark Twain’s take on it: Isn’t it fun to think that by doing the right thing you might please someone? Or astonish someone?
And really, why are we so surprised when someone does the right thing? Is it such a rare commodity nowadays? (And remember, “nowadays” for Mark Twain was during the mid-1800s to early 1900s.)
It’s Friday. I really don’t want to wax philosophical. The end of the week isn’t made for philosophizing. Have a good weekend. Do the right thing. Please someone. Astonish others.
In Your Words: What “right thing” have you done during the past week? Who did you please? Who did you astonish?
