Keeping your word-woodmam

 Soon, Duke Wen of Jin became the hegemon of the world's lords.

  We make a promise, we must go to fulfill it, this is the basis of our foothold in this society. If a person repeatedly breaks his promise, no one will believe him, and he will become a total villain in the eyes of others. When dealing with him, others will always think in their minds: "Will I let this kid cheat? It's better not to deal with him!" If that's the case, he'll only be unable to move an inch.

  ②Be truthful, don't tell lies and lies

  What is truthfulness? To smoke is to start from the actual situation, not to exaggerate, not to shrink, and to treat and deal with problems correctly.

  Truthfulness requires that we have a truthful reflection of things, lies and deception can never exist. We do things if we can not do this, not only may make our own image is damaged, and sometimes even bring disastrous consequences.

  There is a story like this.

  On July 4, 1946, one year and two months had passed since the demise of German Fascism. On that day, hundreds of angry citizens of Kielce, 170 kilometers away from Warsaw, rushed into the streets, beating, arresting and killing Jews on sight, some of whom were taken to a house at 7 Palanthi Street and beaten alive. This wanton massacre lasted from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Forty-two people were murdered, two of whom were killed because they were mistaken for Jews.

  Incredibly, the massacre was caused by a child's lie. Hryan, the child of a Polish shoemaker who had moved to Kielce with his parents from the countryside 20 kilometers away, had only been living there for a few weeks and was uncomfortable with life in the city, when on July 1 he secretly hitchhiked back to the countryside among his children, and three days later he slipped back into the city. When he saw his son's return, his father could not help but feel annoyed and resentful, and took up his whip and chided him, "Where have you been these days, you naughty boy? Have you been abducted by the Jews?" The child, frightened by the fierceness of his father, "confessed" that he had been abducted by the Jews, and lied that the Jews had abducted him to a cellar at No. 7, Pallantine Street, where he was abused.

  The next morning, the angry father went to the police station to report the crime. On the way home, many passers-by curiously asked the father and son what had happened, and they said in graphic detail that Hélien had been abducted by the Jews and tossed around for a few days, when, although World War II had ended, the cloud of German fascist anti-Semitism had not completely lifted. A few people, having listened to the lies, were so angry that they threatened to take revenge on the Jews, and the fabricated "facts" spread in a few hours (even that Hryan had been killed by the Jews). This led to the tragic massacre of the Jews that day.

  Herian's life was often filled with guilt afterwards. 7 Pallanti Street has now been renovated and converted into a memorial so that the world will not forget the past and cherish today.

  It can be said that this was a tragedy caused by a blind word and a lie, and that Helian brought this tragedy to the Jews because he did not observe the principle of truthfulness.

  Everyone has faults, and to cover them up is only to deceive oneself. Not to tell lies and not to make up lies is the first step for everyone to be honest with himself.

  Lying at different ages means different problems, and the quality of honesty is formed gradually. Each of us should keep this in mind: no one is born a liar. In fact, at the beginning of life, each of us possesses an immense amount of honesty. Then, as we grow up, we must strive to always keep this honest and good heart: Fred found a delicate handbag.

  Fred found an exquisite pocket knife, and he always dreamed of owning one of these. Even though it was not his, it was something he had picked up. Because he really liked it too much, so he decided not to look for the owner, despite great hesitation.

  One day, when he proudly showed Tom the exquisite knife, Tom said thoughtfully, "This knife seems to belong to Dr. Perry."

  "Don't you guess." Fred immediately retorted.

  In fact, Fred has not been happy since he found the knife, he is always on edge, afraid that one day the owner will recognize it.

  Before the end of the summer, Fred found Dr. Perry. When Fred arrived at Dr. Perry's house, he was on his way out to see a patient.

  "Is this your pocket knife, sir? Bud," Fred asked nervously and handed the pocket knife he was holding to Dr. Perry to see.

  "Yes," replied Dr. Perry, "but it has been lost for many days, and I thought I could not find it, so I bought another one."

  "I'm the one who picked it up, sir." Fred said, "I've been hiding it for days, and as much as I love it and want to keep it, it's not mine, and now I must return it to you. Well, I'm going out to play, goodbye."

  "Wait? Choose," the doctor called out to him, "you're an honest boy. Now that I have a new one, I'll give you this one."

  "Oh? Really? I'm not dreaming, am I? Thank you Dr. Perry, thank you? Pick."

  Fred was overjoyed because the knife was now "rightfully" his and he no longer had to worry about it.


  Punctuality is also a form of honesty, the keeping of an agreement about time. This may be an agreement with others, or it may refer to a certain system of time, or it may refer to the work and rest time that each of us forms in our daily lives. No matter which one it is, since it is to keep the agreement, the word "keep" must be done.

  Punctuality, that is, according to the time, of course, not late, but also not too much in advance. Some people feel that it is always good to be a little early for any appointment. Actually not, on the one hand, if you arrive early and the other party does not respond accordingly, is this not a waste of your time? On the other hand, if the other party knows that you came early, it can't help but cause him unnecessary distress, and maybe he's not quite ready. In short, unilaterally moving the appointment too far ahead of time is as impolite as being late. It is best to arrive on time, which is the best kind of punctuality.

  The famous biologist Aldous Huxley once said: "Time is most unbiased, giving anyone 24 hours a day. Time is also most parochial, giving no one more than 24 hours." In any case, respecting other people's 24 hours is also respecting our own.

  As a modern person, punctuality is an important habit, keeping the time agreed upon with others as well as keeping the time set by various disciplines. Failure to do so may result in the loss of credibility among classmates and friends and, if it is a matter of discipline, the appropriate punishment: the
