As I MAN-age, I MAN form certain precepts and attain a certain flexibility which determines I MAN persona. I MAN see things with open eyes and I MAN horizons are limitless. I MAN have a certain degree of firmness but welcome divergence and diversity. I MAN is strong enough to let other people be who they are and don’t feel threatened by their brilliance. I MAN know that all birds are not made by the same feathers. I MAN accept that different folks have different strokes. I MAN commit mistakes but cope well with the concomitant frustrations and I own fallibility.
