Someone once said…gentlemen, welcome to the world of reality – there is no audience. No one to applaud, to admire. No one to see you. Do you understand? Here is the truth – actual heroism receives no ovation, entertains no one. No one queues up to see it. No one is interested.
Sounds cynical but true. And maybe just the way it should be. I mean, is there really a need for applause for one to stick to the straight path that others can admire? Someone also said….character is a reflection of what you do when no one is looking.
Of course, whose kidding who? Anyone who claims not to want an ovation is being a hypocrite. The point is, is it really a necessity to do what is right?
