There are three roads that we can take in life:
The low road – where we treat people worse than they treat us
The middle road – where we treat people the same as they treat us
The high road – where we treat people better than they treat us
John C. Maxwell
April 26th - Love takes the high road
When you 'take the high road’ it means doing the right thing even if its not popular or easy. If a person wrongs you, no need to go and seek revenge or let it worry you. Take the high road and let them take the low road. In the long run that person will have probably wronged many people and their reputation is tarnished. Their road is rougher. While if you don't let it bother you and stick to doing the right thing, life will more likely work out for you as you are not bothered by the negative stress and your reputation is better.
Always take the high road; the benefits may not be immediate, but they are inevitable.
Like a High Road the view is often better and you can travel faster, while the low road is slower and has more obstacles and traffic lights.
Taking the high road is hard work-- walking uphill requires strength and effort. Anyone can take the low road--walking downhill is easy.
