    I think that this quote has a lot of truth because most times the high-minded man is a person who has a lot going for him. Perhaps the top negotiator for a prominent company and they mostly have all the answers. Since people come to them for answers they have to forget about their reputation and high status and care for the truth rather than what people think.

    Listen to Aristotle, he knows. We need more high-minded men (and women) in today's world.

    We need more people like this... people who aren't afraid to be individuals.

    Hard to argue with that.

    We hold this truth to be self evident ! ! ! The high-positioned man in the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land cares nothing for truth and only slightly more for what people think, its all about spreading the religion of socialism.

    Indeed! The truth is terribly politically incorrect where image is everything -- substance only tears through the paper tiger. Reality is a bummer if all you've invested in is fantasy.
