Women of God (repost)

It seemed appropriate to repost this this month (link)

Women of God can never be like women of the world.

The world has enough women who are tough;
we need women who are tender.

There are enough women who are coarse;
we need women who are kind.

There are enough women who are rude;
we need women who are refined.

We have enough women of fame and fortune;
we need more women of faith.

We have enough greed;
we need more goodness.

We have enough vanity;
we need more virtue.

We have enough popularity;
we need more purity.

Margaret D Nadauld

Since I worry that my drive and passion leads me to be all of the former things (coarse and tough in particular), how do you think that women can be driven and achieve influence on social issues and still main the latter virtues? I'm just thinking outloud and curious to read what you think.
