When I worked full time for a company, many superiors praised me for my honesty. But being honest is just an ordinary thing for me. If you live, you live honestly. That's the way you go. So, I didn't take notice of their compliment because there was no reason to be praised.
But recently there was an incident that made me suspect that honesty is truly my merit. What is more, it may be my sole merit as a student of philosphy. Then, I ought to make the most of it. This resolution caused me to buy two small notebooks. One of them will be used to take notes of new English words. The other, to write down English sentences that will be of help when I am to write an article in the language. I don't know if they will work or if honesty will pay. But let's do this.
