Can you stand in the face of adversity and say
“I will not back down!”
Can you stand in the face of a lover and say
“I will be completely yours.”
and actually follow that statement with your actions?
Can u stand in the face of prosperity and joy and say
“I will share you with others.”
and act on it?
That is the measure of a man and a woman’s worth.
