Just A Thought


"They talk of a man betraying his country, his friends, his sweetheart. There must be a moral bond first. All a man can betray is his conscience." - Joseph Conrad.

how true!

"though those that are betrayed
do feel the treason sharply,
yet the traitor,
stands in worse case of woe" -- william shakespeare.

the trappings of money and other comfort of life will ease the woes, i guess for the traitors.
To Nat, I salute for his courage and steadfastness to his cause and belief.
God bless him and all those that stand true to their calling including you, Nuraina. best wishes.

Basically Man is selfish. He forms great bonds with king, country, lover. He feels great love for them no doubt. But love is an emotion. It is transient and cannot be the basis for great deeds.

There must be commitment, responsibility and integrity in love and war.

Then we can talk about greatness!
