“Rather than love, than money, than faith, than fame, than fairness … give me truth.” -Chris “Supertramp” McCandless expanding on the original quote by Henry David Thoreau
A perfect expansion! Am such a stickler for fairness, for the principle of a thing, and yet as much as that’s a massive internal drive for me, it falls flat in the want of truth. Too much of life has been served up in lies, or rather, omissions. So, though truth may carry with it an element of pain at times, it’s always worth it to help balance the deceptions of the past. And, at the very least, I find that a sense of peace dwells alongside the pain of truth for way of compensation.
That is not an appropriate use of a candy bar! Brat(t).
