My dear,

Truth only means something when it’s hard to admit.

Don’t you get that!

An easy truth is not worthless. But it does not compare to the hard truth. The truth that requires every fiber of your being to stand erect when spoken. The truth that brings sweat to your pores and speed to your heart.

The easy truth cannot compare to that.

For that truth, the hard to admit truth, is the one that makes the world set it many eyes and ears upon it. Whether the world shall mock or praise is up to them. But the hard truth does what it sets out to do – it makes the world pay attention.

Falsely yours,
Nicholas Charles Sparks
