1) A man of wisdom does not make decisions or opinions without thought, and he does not vacillate (waver) after he has made them.

2) Confucius said, "[A good man] does not worry (fret) about not being known by others but rather worries about not knowing them.

3) A man of valor is not afraid to correct a mistake or to act upon something he knows is wrong.
