The Ways of Men

Q: "Why don't you respect our customs?"
A: "Our customs, have never respected me."

Q: "Why should our customs respect you?"
A: "I see no reason why they should not. Devotion without respect is gained by fear and force. I will reserve my devotion so it may be given freely."

Q: "Even if it is never given? Do you really expect all of our customs to change for you?"
A: "Isn't it better to be alone, than to be abused by a spouse? The same is true for customs, religions and all ways of men."
A: "And yes, I do expect everything to change, but not just for me. No one is that unique. I await changes for myself and all those like me."
