Are our tests equal?


Some things are equal.

But what of good, better, best?

Strive on to perfect.

    November: the month when "The war to end all wars" ended; yet wars go on. November: the month when America's elections end, and governments go on.

  • A Haiku - Leadership

    What defines a true leader? It isn't just charisma and sensing their power. It isn't just making us afraid so we are mobilized. It's being true, honest, fair, up front, and out front. This Haiku examines leadership.

Why accept mediocre when we have better and best? Our King and Savior is the greatest thing that ever happened to me.

Equality and Quality should not be intermixed...

Intelligence is quality... thus rated.. good better or best

On the other hand... Equality lies in the abstract philosophies which have been shaping mankind.. like equality of races, gender, privileges, facilities

Quality should not be compromised for the worst

and Equality should be dealt with rationale

Love you're inspiring poem. I try be better and my best. Perfection is an unreachable goal because God is perfect.

flashmakeit: Christ said for us to be "even as I am." That leaves our goal being to perfect ourselves as much as possible (a full time job.)

raciniwa : I guess it is hard to try perfectly before we are perfect. Not the perfect reply I'm sure.
