“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.
