Worthy, Wise and Virtuous:

The Blessed Buddha once said:
Utthanako analaso,
Apadasu na vedhati,
Acchinnavutti medhavi,
Tadiso labhate yasam.

Digha Nikaya III 273

Worthy, wise and virtuous:
Who is energetic and not indolent,
In misfortune unshaken,
Flawless in manner and intelligent,
Such one will honour gain.

On the Enthusiastic Energy (viriya):

Worthy, Wise and Virtuous...

Those of flawless noble behaviour will honour gain!

Friendship is the Greatest!
