It's a true exposure and a real risk to show your (of course true) feelings. When people can, they attack you, they try to bite a piece out of you. They try to make you fall into contradiction, they try to make you look like a fool. Well, let them try! You will die a little, it's also true. And you may even suffer. But if you are strong and faithful to yourself, you can always rise. Rise and rise, and rise again over them. Be true to yourself, be honest; it's what matters. That's your code of honor.
"... King against King! Love one another with burning hearts; on the low men trample in the fierce lust of your pride, in the day of your wrath." (Book of the Law, v. 24. Chapter II)
-- Yes, master. I will.
