A man is defined by the choices he makes when he loses his internal compass. It is one thing to conduct yourself with “virtue”, when you are safely ensconced within a systemic set of moral constraints, it is another thing to do so when the constraints are gone, and when you have nothing more to go on than what compels you from within your deepest essence. I am truly who I am when I discover that I could be no one else.
