The rationale

May 26, 2017

Often why we like to sidestep the rule is because we lack a rationale, a compelling reason why it’s better to do what’s right. And most often it’s a momentary craving unwilling to even allow the debate, for the urge to break the rule seems more spontaneous, even natural or native. But timeworn rules are in place precisely because there is a rationale. And it’s better to stick to them even without too much clarity. For otherwise, although the rationale may come later, neither time nor opportunity will be around to put it to use. Health, character, opportunity, hard work, time, example, influence are all of that class where it’s easy to lose but hard to recover. Play by timeworn rules (otherwise called truth) to keep and get the maximum out of these.
