like honor and integrity..is an old fashioned word. No one speaks of it anymore..
But I have learned that you cannot live without it... It is not faith..but courage after all, that moves mountains.
You can live without money, talent, beauty or personality..
But you cannot survive without courage.
Contrary to the thought of centuries of religious and philosophers..
who are a lot smarter than I and should know better.. you CAN live without faith and ethics.. People do it all the time. But you cannot live without courage.
You CAN live without education..rank or position... But you cannot live without courage..
It seems to me that the first and most requisite command was left out of the Ten Commandments. Surely Moses, ..blinded by the situation, ..simply did not hear the very first commandment..
That commandment surely WAS...
THOU SHALT LIVE!!!!
Thou shalt live in poverty or grandeur..in health or sickness..
in the bosom of a loving family or cast out to the streets..
Yet you must live...
you must have courage..
You must live!!!
and the definition of courage must therefore be...to live... and to recognize success..or failure.. as merely a byblow of life...
because you are busy living...
