“Wise men are not pacifists; they are merely less likely to jump up and retaliate against their antagonizers. They know that needless antagonizers are virtually already insecure enough.” – Criss Jami
We mistake aggression for a demonstration of masculine virtue. I am told that I don’t fight enough, but in truth, I do, I just do not feel the need to lash out over it to prove myself. My conflicts and my battles are seldom on any battlefield outside of myself.
