Integrity

“The strength of a nation depends on the integrity of the home.”

Confucius

Commentary

Integrity is telling the truth to oneself. If one looks deeply inside TRUTH , it is simple, it requires paying attention.

You must know who you are and what it is that you want at the root of your being. You must know your goals, otherwise start looking for answers inside yourself. Do not ask anybody, it is unnecessary.

All parents want the best for their children, that is natural. It is evident that to raise a youngster parents must have crystal clear the core, the essence behind all the teaching.

“If a man knows not to which port he sails, no wind is favorable.” Seneca.

It is the backbone of the daily teachings that can help the child to develop healthily into people able to build a strong country. It is the quality of the men and women of the nation that make it powerful or powerless.

It is the essence of the seeds planted daily that counts. Be a diligent gardener. Watch the seeds : if they are good, they will be helpful, if otherwise, they will be a hindrance. Plant seeds of love that will be beneficial to the infant. Strong men are never nurtured with fear, shouts, anger, resentment or hate.

The fearful are unsubstantial. They are easily enervated and uncertain, usually doubtful. Small people live small lives.

Lessons for life are taught at home and all homes make a nation. The features and characteristics of what has been taught can easily be seen in any country.

The power of a nation is not measured by the solid walls or barriers built but by the quality of the men and the strength of the women behind them.

Great people make great nations.
