People love super heroes. ? It's true we're ? impressed by their bravery and fortitude, their supernatural gifts and physical brawn. ? But the fact is, villains possess these same qualities. ? So why our admiration for the hero and not the nemesis? ? Because of virtue. ? A super hero gives everything to defend what's good and right without seeking praise or reward. ? Think about it. ? All the great heroes give without taking; help without grumbling; sacrifice without asking recompense. ? A super hero's real strength, what we absolutely fall in love with, is his finer virtue.
There are people who are never content, never appeased, forever dissatisfied; who continually look to what escapes them, convincing themselves that if only they could attain that one desire outside of reach, they would be happy. ? It seems almost pointless to give to these people because their eyes immediately shift from the gift to stare miserably at the portion held back. ? Their wants, demands, expectations, appetites are never satiated, thus, they refuse to be happy. ? And you cannot make them so.
