No one can produce great things who is not thoroughly sincere in dealing with oneself.
It takes strength and courage to be yourself.
La Rochefoucauld stated that,
“The weak cannot be sincere,” and this is true.
Weak people have a very hard time being sincere because they doubt themselves;
and it is not only the weak that have a hard time being sincere with others.
In fact, the vast majority of people are insincere to a point.
La Rochefoucauld went on to teach that,
“Sincerity is an openness of heart that is found in very few people. What we usually see is only an artful disguise people put on to win the confidence of others.”
People have agendas, and to achieve those agendas, they play the parts that they believe will make them successful, instead of sincerely being themselves.
It is for this reason that you have to be very careful and try to look behind the veil to find out who the real person truly is.
We on the other hand, acts with sincerity. This doesn’t mean that he always lets everyone know exactly who he is or what he is thinking – he doesn’t.
That would be unwise.
Sincerity simply means acting from a place of truth concerning who you really are.
You must be sincere with yourself as well as with other people.
"Courage is not the absence of fear, yet the mastery of it." Victor Hugo
History has its truth... so has a legend.
Its truth, being of another nature than that of what has gone before.
Invented be it the result of a reality, unspeakable to fathom;
Let alone imagine.
Immortalising the answered calling;
The cries of a soul bathed in eternal love; darkened night.
An endless quest, a love therein, my only guiding light
