The average man lives two lives. One life is lived on the outside and is measured by worldly successes. The second life is lived on the inside and is measured by personal failures.
A strong man lives a single life measured by success and failure inside and out.
A weak man also lives but one life, a life weighed by failures on every side.
The villain lives measured by triumph inside the skull and whether he is found out on the outside.
Each one is only one step away from the others.
