”Nazi theory indeed specifically denies that such a thing as ‘the truth’ exists. There is, for instance, no such thing as ‘science’. There is only ‘German science’, ‘Jewish science’ etc. The implied objective of this line of thought is a nightmare world in which the Leader, or some ruling clique, controls not only the future but the past. If the Leader says of such and such an event, ‘It never happened’ – well, it never happened. If he says that two and two are five – well, two and two are five. This prospect frightens me much more than bombs – and after our experiences of the last few years that is not a frivolous statement.” – George Orwell
Indeed, isn’t it funny when you think of it? Webster defines Cowardice as being fearful or timid and the same, Courage as being of mental or moral strength to persevere.
Indeed, there is some food for thought!
It is often that we find ourselves among people who do not lie, and yet do not tell the truth. White lies, they are called sometimes. I don’t know what is ‘white’ about it, if you ask me I think it is pink with dark brown spots, two huge floppy ears and a few really big and pale yellow teeth.
It isn’t often that we find people who will strive to remain more than honest, who will strive to be courageous. Honesty is always a tricky term because we can delude ourselves and those around us to believe that the truth all comes down to perception of the same. Whereas courage? It comes from within and it glorifies your words with pin pricking ‘correctness’. Truth? Who knows! It is indeed courage that I think we should look for!
It isn’t all that impossible to be courageous, but one must understand that it lies in the smallest of things, courage does.
Tell the girl who never returned your crush that shes a tenner, tell the funny guy who looks down on you for no reason that you like his sense of humor, tell your best friend that you think she is overly dramatic for no real reason and NO you wouldn’t do the same if you were her and NO you don’t totally get it.
It’s a combination of funny things that rescued our little dog, fate, faith, love and a good story. Don’t forget, Courage, no matter how cowardly he was to live, always had a good story and a happy ending. 🙂
