The 8 Cardinal Virtues of George Washington Carver

In a thank you note penned during 1922, George Washington Carver advised his students to possess these 8 Cardinal Virtues:

  • Be clean both inside and outside.
  • Who neither looks up to the rich or down on the poor.
  • Who loses, if needs be, without squealing.
  • Who wins without bragging.
  • Who is always considerate of women, children and old people.
  • Who is too brave to lie.
  • Who is too generous to cheat.
  • Who takes his share of the world and lets other people have theirs.

America needs more men like George Carver.
