My dear,

Strength (true strength), is hardly ever noticed.

That’s because true strength asks for no attention. True strength puts on no show of strength. It does not ask that you recognize that it’s strong. It just is. In silence.

There is no “look at me” factor to true strength.

Rudeness on the other hand…

Rudeness is the weak person’s imitation of strength.

Rudeness is weakness dressed in strength’s clothing. It only wears the look because it’s fashionable.

Rudeness is an attention seeking little runt and I ask of you not to follow it’s path.

Be not rude, be strong.

Falsely yours,
Eric Hoffer
