"Some people say you can judge a person by the philosohy by which he lives. -browneyes2004"

And this is my answer. "Nice query, Mikaela but the question is 'who are we to judge?' One adage I still remember is that we have no right to look down on our fellowmen because only the Fountain Head or our Prime Mover sits that high and that only our sublime Creator has the sole authority to condemn each of us. Not you to me or vice-versa just because I am bisexual or something. You can't put a good man down even in life or after death and that what you think of yourself is much more important than what others think of you so long as you don't bug or distract anyone, agree? But my main philosophy deals with life's reality and it came from Plato: "It is natural for a child to be afraid of the dark; the catastrophe is when man becomes terrified by the light." It's like standing by your conviction whether in writing or public speaking, and come what may, I am not scared of anyone who try to ruin my credibility as a person or as a journalist. They can't make me stumble nor cow in fear and even if I fall down, I will assure them that I'm gonna stand up because once a fighter is always a fighter. I won't and I hate to be a chicken-livered individual."
