Wisdom is silent, and the most effective propaganda for truth is the force of personal example.

Henry Miller

There’s more to this quoted exceprt1 — particularly this secondary line “The great ones are indifferent, in the profoundest sense. They don’t ask you to believe: they electrify you by their behavior. They are the awakeners.”

I’ve learned that the people I trust the most and the ones who consitently prove themselves by genuine intuitive and heartfelt actions.
