Living by Example

Be strong of character, sincere in purpose, selfless in service.
Our temper we control, our emotions we rein in, our hurt feelings we press down.                                                                            We share our ideals with others and get our message across through the example we set.

What is true, what is not? Rhetoric can make the truth as untruth and lies and deceit as values. How to set an example is being true to oneself, doing what you are saying or the famous “walk the talk” not talk the talk and walk the walk, following the norms which were already corrupted.

I thought I had my fill of the language of law and the different interpretations, what is the difference between culpa and dolo – fault and blame. Mea culpa says Madam Ombudsman. Do I need to review the latin words to be a sterling example of goodness and veritas . “Veritas et Utilitas”, translated to “Truth and Service”

Shall I say more? Will we ever get the truth and justice as an essence of service?  Do not judge lest ye be judged.

Oscar Wilde said it eloquently, “ A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it.”   He also said that,  “The truth is rarely pure and never simple.
