The Incantation

Some years back a master artist put things into concise clarity by telling me that: “Nothing supercedes character.”

There, in one declarative sentence, he had cut through all the nonsense and density of the world. Here was the essence, the code of conduct, of what most people truly respect, even if they cannot yet put it into words. Here, he drew a line in the sand, the bottom line that showed on which side you stood.

Do you stand for something or are you a fence sitter?
