You don’t earn loyalty in a day. You earn loyalty day-by-day. (Jeffrey H. Gitomer, author and business trainer)

Gitomer was commenting on the “Ides of March,” the day in which Caesar was assassinated in Shakespeare’s play, Julius Caesar. He had been warned of that day, but the deed was done, perpetrated by his own people and led by his friend Brutus. Loyalty is too often a lost virtue in today’s “me first” society. Yet, it is a primary feature of character and integrity.

No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. (Matthew 6:24)
