Measure Of A Man – 2

Green_Lantern_LogoYou may wonder why in the 1st article, I had put a picture of Superman. My earlier post had a collection of statements from famous people on measuring the character of a man. Its the character of the man is his true test of his strength. While there are many decent individuals around, if you truly wanted to measure what makes a really good man, its these statements. Ladies take note. πŸ˜‰

So why Green Lantern in this article?
From all of the quotes that I found and compiled into that article, one stood out. Its was a statement by William Thomson or famously known as “Lord Kelvin”.
β€œThe true measure of a man is what he would do if he knew he would never be caught.”

While others talked about overcoming trials, the way a person treats another or facing challenges; this statement stood out because it was a true reflection of someone’s character; what is in his heart – no external forces or situations needed.

I read this on the internet the other day. – β€œOur character is what we do when we think no one is looking. Everyone tries to define this thing called Character. It’s not hard. Character is doing what’s right when nobody’s looking.”

What we do in secret, behind close doors, is the plain definition of who we really are. If you knew that no one is looking, and no one will ever find out, what would you choose to do?… That there is you; the true you.

If someone was to measure me today. I can only hope that the scores are good. πŸ™‚
