Make Yourself an Honest Man

"Make yourself an honest man, and then you may be sure that there is one less scoundrel in the world."
— Thomas Carlyle

I think it is an interesting quote.  Oh yeah, if you were a Christian, read it for fun because making oneself better is not a biblical teaching.  I have to say that today many Christian teachings are not biblical because of that.  For Christians, we need to count ourselves as dead instead of making ourselves better.

By the way, I think there is one hopeless, hidden situation of which Mr. Carlyle is not aware.  The human population growth is positive meaning that the birth rate is greater than the death rate.  In other word, the moment one makes him/herself an honest person, there will be many more scoundrel born in this world.  I tell ya, it is a losing battle. XD

    Is "Mr Caryle" meant to be Thomas Carlyle, but just without the extra "l" put in his surname? lol, I’m imagining it is.Anyways, I was searching for random images on Google Image Search, and I came across one which was contained within your MSN Space. So I decided to go through and check out your stuff. Pretty cool space, come to think of it – keep up the good work.Well that’s all I have to say.ttfn.From Swanny :D(P.S. How do you get the bits like the Windows Media Player part into your MSN Space?)
