ENCOURAGEMENT: Display proudly the Rotary Four Way Test in your business.
The Four Way Test underscores our commitment to integrity of the things we think,
say and do. What a privilege it is to belong to an organization with so many leaders
in our community.
Why is the third hand on the watch called the second hand???
If a word is misspelled in the dictionary, how would we ever know?
Why does “slow down” and “slow up” mean the same thing???
Why do we sing “Take me out to the ball game” when we are already there?
Why are they called “stands” when they are made for sitting??
Why is it called “after dark” when it really is “after light” ??
Doesn’t “expecting the unexpected” make the unexpected expected ?
Why is “phonics” not spelled the way it sounds??
If work is so terrific, why do they have to pay you to do it??
If all the world is a stage, where is the audience sitting??
Why do we put suits in a garment bag, and garments in a suitcase??
How come abbreviated is such a long word??
Why doesn’t glue stick to the inside of the bottle??
Why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway???
Out of the Mouths of Babes
A young child walked up to her mother and stared at her hair. As mother
scrubbed on the dishes, the girl cleared her throat and sweetly asked;
"Why do you have some grey strands in your
hair?"The mother paused and looked at her
daughter. "Every time you disobey, I get one
strand of grey hair. If you want me to stay pretty, you better obey."The mother quickly returned to her task of washing dishes. The little
girl stood there thinking. She cleared her throat
again. "Mother?" She sweetly asked
again."Yes?" Her Mother replied. "Why is Grandma's hair all grey?"
The Rotary Four Way Test
1 Is it the truth
2. Is it fair to all concerned
3. Will it build good will and
4. Will it be beneficial to all!
Bubba and Johnny Ray, two good ole
boys from North Carolina, were sitting'
on their trucks drinking beer when a
large truck hauling rolls and rolls of sod
went by."I'm gonna do that when I win
the lottery," said Bubba."Do what?"
asked Johnny Ray."Send my grass out to be mowed," answered Bubba.
