Truth is truth, does not change.
Truth should be respected by all men.
Respect for truth should be an indication of refinement of the mind.
Some people are blessed with refined mind pretty early in life, others come along later, sometimes with quite a bit of hard work. In general, a man of 40 is expected to be well within the zone and so should be very respectful of the truth.
A man whose truth depends on whom he is dealing with is still far short of the mark. And it can be very disturbing if he is up to 40, even if he is not fortunate enough to go to school. Let’s all strive to be respectful of the truth irrespective of the circumstances. The world will surely be a better place.
