Sample text

The philosophical mind never wishes to win an argument, but rather the truth. Argument is a sure sign of conversation gone sour. Some argue to prove a point, others to prove themselves. ARISTOCRACY Leaning on ancestors proves most often that aristocracy hardly ever outlasts its first generations. A horse does not become a thoroughbred by chewing its bats without snorting, nor a man by genteel handling of knife and fork. What was good in aristocracies is long disappeared and what is left is good for nothing.

At best they only give you the neighbors’ opinion of the hero, or some imagined composite put together with clippings and transcripts. We often don’t know what really motivates the soul of our nearest kin or acquaintance. Who dares to state with any degree of certainty what moved a man a century ago, a thousand miles away? The biographer is like the man who longs to see the legendary lady in the castle window. She raises the blinds only when she is ready for you, all made up and dressed up and smiled up.

DISAPPOINTMENT Is a signpost to true values. DISCONTENT Has fired both holy vessels and unholy crackpots. Discontent may become either spur or spite. DISCRETION Is the tact not to see what can’t be helped. DISCUSSION Professionals here are as distasteful as in cards or sports. DISEASE Can be conquered but hate has to be dissuaded. DISSENSION Is disagreeable but it is hate that is the danger.
