Where are the people who have the courage of their convictions? Sometimes it is easy to feel alone in this regard. People are too easily swayed. Too fearful to take a path through life that requires something. Too influenced by what is easy, by what requires the smallest expenditure of energy, by the expectations of their culture, or by what society has laid down as the "preferred" path.
The people I admire most are those who have a conviction and actually stand by it.
