Previous Section   55. DEFENCE MORALLY MORE DIFFICULT THAN ATTACK   Next Section

Defence Morally more Difficult than Attack.  The true heroic deed and masterpiece of the good man does not lie in attacking opinions and continuing to love their propounders, but in the far harder task of defending his own position without causing or intending to cause bitter heartburns to his opponent.  The sword of attack is honest and broad, the sword of defence usually runs out to a needle point.
