Before You

Before you speak, listen.
Before you write, think.
Before you spend, earn.
Before you invest, investigate.
Before you criticize, wait.
Before you pray, forgive.
Before you quit, try.
Before you retire, save.
Before you die, give.
~ William Arthur Ward~
I used to have this quote taped on my desk at my business office.  I looked at it every single day and I absorbed the words like a sponge.  This is one of the most profound things I've ever read.  It's simple, but an inspiring way to live.
