Do what is right

You know what the right thing is. So do it.

You know what the wrong thing is. So avoid falling into its trap.

Your choices are not easy, but neither are they particularly complicated. Strip away all their extraneous parts, and choose to do the right thing.

Some courses of action support and enhance life, and others degrade or inhibit, or worse. Do what gives more joy, more robustness, more respect and love to all of life.

Some things sound good at first, impressive, compassionate, sophisticated, but don’t feel right. You have the wisdom to know and to do what actually is right, so make use of it.

When faced with options, choose the one that will leave you with no regrets. Do what is right.

— Ralph Marston
