By a lie a man throws away and ... annihilates his dignity as a man. A man who himself does not believe what he tells another ... has even less worth than if he were a mere thing. ... makes himself a mere deceptive appearance of man, not man himself. Life has been quite a journey for me at this point in my life. I have no regrets and think of the difficult times as learning experiences. The person I have become today is the sum of those life experiences.
