Quotes About Former Classmates

"resisting the temptation whose logic was "In this extenuating circumstance, just this once, its OK" has proven to be one of the most important decisions of my life. Why? My life has been one unending stream of extenuating circumstances. Had I crossed the line that one time, I would have done it over and over in the years that followed.The lesson I learned from this is that its easier to hold to your principles 100% of the time than it is to hold to them 98% of the time. If you give in to "just this once," based on a marginal cost analysis, as some of my former classmates have done, youll regret where you end up. Youve got to define for yourself what you stand for and draw the line in a safe place." - Author: Clayton M. Christensen
