2 SOKES

“It is essential to make it one’s personal aim to have “no compromise” and live a just and honest life, no matter how surrounded one may be with dire circumstances, temptation, or evil. Even if by compromising one’s values momentarily, one seems to be successful for a time, such a life is bound to end in failure. There is no need for one to reason about the nature of evil. I have handled violent men very often. There are two kinds of them. Upon their eminent defeat, there are some who become good in the very last moment, even if they have been abusive, egotistical, or criminally manipulative until then. On the other hand there are some who are bad and depraved to the very moment of their death. One must develop the eyes to see through such men, so that you will know the proper course of action necessary in a situation.”
