We treasure the sexy,
it's even sneaking into mainstream corporate language today
(to my annoyance)

We cherish kindness,
for good reasons

We respect the hard working,
and we should, but to what aims are we working?

We cherish beauty,
even though it will fade
The only beauty that transcends our lifespan is mountains, forests, sunshine, God and His presence

We amaze at fame,
and question too little what brought it about

We once respected loyalty,
do we still?

We crave self-fulfilment,
and leave a trail of broken hearts


What is sexy without intelligence?
What is kindness without the stability of commitment?
What is hard work without both intelligence and commitment?
What is beauty without long-term admiration for a soul, it’s just a fleeting moment.
What is fame without substance, character and fidelity?
What is respect without commitment to principle or person?
What is self-fulfilment with regrets and a life span shorter than your own?


Intelligence is underrated
Long term planning and commitment is undervalued
