Try not to become a person of success, but rather try to become a person of value. (Albert Einstein, noted scientist)

Ours is a success-oriented society. It’s more than just wanting not to fail. From early childhood we want to be first in everything, and from there to adulthood, we are pushed to be winners in whatever we pursue. Sometimes winners, however, don’t always exhibit the best conduct. The person of integrity is always a winner in the most important sense.

Kings take pleasure in honest lips; they value the one who speaks what is right. (Proverbs 16:13)
