Panache

“Men propound mathematical theorems in besieged cities, conduct metaphysical arguments in condemned cells, make jokes on the scaffold, discuss a new poem while advancing to the walls of Quebec, and comb their hair at Thermopylae. This is not panache; it is our nature.” ― C.S. Lewis

Man has the remarkable innate ability to handle even the most trying of circumstances with grace, ingenuity, and dignity. His spirit – fired by love and tempered by truth – is the spirit of overcoming. And his heart – as delicate and sensitive an instrument as it is – is his connection to wisdom. When in alignment, man’s spirit and heart become a channel through which his inner panache finds expression in relation to the details of his living.

One thought on “Panache

  • May we all be counted as men with our own penache as the one known as Jesus so revealed. We each have a special part to play related to the expression of the details of our daily lives whether they be difficult or not. The confidence that comes with acknowledging the individual part we play in benefit to all of us brings style and the indominatebleness of life. Your words are greatly appreciated.
