The wise thing is for us diligently to train ourselves to lie thoughtfully, judiciously; to lie with a good object, and not an evil one; to lie for others' advantage, and not our own; to lie healingly, charitably, humanely, not cruelly, hurtfully, maliciously; to lie gracefully and graciously, not awkwardly and clumsily; to lie firmly, frankly, squarely, with head erect, not haltingly, tortuously, with pusillanimous mien, as being ashamed of our high calling.
Once a man recognizes himself as a being surrounded by other beings in this world and begins to respect his life and take it to the highest value, he becomes a thinking being. Then he values other lives and experiences them as part of his own life. With that, his goal is to help everyone take their life to the highest value; anything which limits or destroys a life is evil. That is morality. That is how men are related to the world around them.
I had always been scrupulously careful to avoid the smallest suggestion of infant indoctrination, which i think is ultimately responsible for much of the evil in the world. Others, less close to her, showed no such scruples, which upset me, as i very much wanted her, as i want all children, to make up her own mind freely when she became old enough to do so. I would encourage her to think, without telling her what to think.
The effects which follow too constant and intense a concentration upon evil are always disastrous. Those who crusade, not for god in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes even perceptibly worse than it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself.
Be famous. Be a big social experiment in getting what you don't want. Find value in what we've been taught is worthless. Find good in what the world says is evil. I'm giving you my life because i want the whole world to know you. I wish the whole world would embrace what it hates. Find what you're afraid of most and go live there.
