A REALITY NOT A DRAMA


You cannot make a drama out of it. It has to be a reality. By standing like a big, imposing person, you do not become that. On the contrary, people will think you are mad. It should be from within that you should develop that dignity within yourself – that poise, that balance, that understanding within yourself – a kindly poise, a beautiful personality, benevolent, but standing above everyone else by his gravity, depth, gentlemanliness, generosity, proper bearing, neatness, cleanliness, above all, love, heart like an ocean, most forgiving. (8 1979)
