Be diligent and decent

Last week I went to Oklahoma City to attend the 40th wedding anniversary party of one of my cousins. While I was there I visited the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum and read these inspiring words on the wall . . .

Once asked what advice he gives young people, Judge Murrah replied, “Get a good education. Decide what you want to do. Whatever you like to do best is exactly the thing you are fitted for . . . be diligent and decent . . . don’t begrudge the fact that you have to work for what you get. The greatest rewards in living come from living outside and beyond one’s self . . . the greatest qualities a man can have are simplicity and humility.”
