    Men DO NOT exist for the sake of one another. It is noble to, without violence, "Teach them then or bear with them."

    Well, folks, the world is made up of 'other people'. It is inevitable that we associate with others, work, play, love, disagree, fight, support, ... on and on. If we so believe that our way is better than their way, we can either force our way on them or convince them to adopt our ways by more inspiring reasoning. Otherwise, let them be. Remember -- from 'their' persepctive, YOU are the 'other guy'.

    Marcus Aurelius Antoninus was a Stoic, knowing well a persons philosophy is measured best, not by words, but by their actions. A virtuous life in one accord with nature and the natural law of morality. Teach your children now or bear with them later. Very much in line with Plato, king David and seeking after that which good is.

    " How shall they " hear " except a teacher be sent." this for the sake of your fellow man. Many are called but few are chosen, let your words be few and your actions be right.
