A good father does not merely bestows his son’s a name, he bestows his sons the principles with which to honour it.
If they raise buildings and statues in his memory, a man is deemed great. A far greater act however that honours a man’s legacy, is not the raising of buildings or statues, but often overlooked is instead it is the raising of beings, children who are bestowed with his name. A living legacy, raised properly their good thoughts and actions not only serve to honour his memory but add to it as well, unlike arts and architecture who merely testify to it.
There is no value in oaths and vows in of themselves, rather they are only as good as the man that swears by them.
