The ability to think and act for the benefit of one's self—without malice towards others—requires intelligence, not hostility; courage, not shame. And it's not as small or limiting a performance as "acting like a man"; it's as large and freeing as being human and humane. It insists upon following the example of peace, where gender is immaterial. It requires something vastly different from dominance, abject wealth and superficial displays: It requires integrity; it requires love.
Love is where you find it. And you won't find it anywhere until you've found it within."
Son of Baldwin
