On doing good (ii)

There are those who say you should never talk about the good you do for fear that others might think you are boasting to earn praise. But should not you, while trying to live virtuously and do good, show the way? There is a way to talk that invites praise and there is a way to talk that moves others to action. Relay the good you do in such a way that others wish to join you in the good. Do not boast, but remind others that there are still people in the world who wish to do the right thing.
