Substance

There’s something about the man who practices what he preaches that makes his cause appealing. Its not that he is infallible, we may not even agree with his ideas, but in an age where so many are seeking to be politically correct, even at the expense of personal conviction or numbing of the conscience, such integrity in enviable. In the information age, words have lost their weight; agreements must be made in writing. But perhaps even weightier than contracts penned on paper is the substance of the man; who he is day to day, when no one is watching, whether his activity is the same when no profits can be made, and no acknowledgement given. Perhaps to avoid the embarrassment of having our inconsistencies magnified when we have made a name for ourselves, we should actually become the people we claim to be.

What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say- Ralph Waldo Emerson
