Can You Handle the Truth?
 
Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.—Abraham Lincoln
 
It would be humorous, if it weren’t so sad.
 
You hear the drug crowd defending their tragic choice with something like:  “Hey, man, it ain’t just the drugs. You also have to work super hard to get that big and strong!”
 
Of course you do. No one with sense would deny that. It is not the cheater's willingness to face a tough workout that is in question . . . but his willingness to face the truth.
