Winning with Honour l The 4-Way Test

As we start a new week, let us be inspired by this sculpture by Mr Victor Tan Wee Tar that is nestled in the beautiful Singapore Botanic Gardens, which is a UNESCO world heritage site.

In this sculpture called “Passing of Knowledge”, a continuous stream of water connects a larger figure and a smaller figure – “knowledge, like water, is vital to life”, and “the water is symbolic of the passing of knowledge from generation to generation”.

The sign that accompanies the sculpture explains: “This embodies the Rotarians’ hope that the values cultivated by The 4 Way Test will continue to be a guiding principle in human relations for our future generations.”

And what it is the 4-Way Test?

Of the things we think, say, or do, let us think:

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to ALL CONCERNED?
  3. Will it Build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIP?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to ALL CONCERNED?

Wishing one and all a great week ahead!
