The measure of a man

by Grady Poulard

The measure of a man is not determined
by his show of outward strength,
or the volume of his voice,
or the thunder of his action.
It is to be seen, rather,
in terms of the strength of his commitments,
The genuineness of his friendships,
the sincerity of his purpose,
The quiet courage of his convictions,
his capacity to suffer,
and his willingness to continue ‘growing up’.
