Over time, character wins. The true nature of an individual shines through. Good people have good things done unto them.
Those who cut corners? The corners add up and eventually someone notices.
Those who advance their own interests at the expense of others? The boomerang comes back around.
If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
Values work. Character wins. And at the end of the day all of the material wealth and superficial advancement in the world cannot replace either.
