I like how McDonald could articulate something that I would ordinarily take for granted to the point that I had forgotten all about it. He reminds me that the best qualities in humans usually have to be nurtured and developed, they don't just happen.
The best qualities in humans DO have to be nurtured and developed. What we say we value is not what matters. How we live our lives to reflect our core values, that's what matters.My dad used to say that the greatest tragedy in life, would be for it to occur to you on your deathbed that you had wasted your life, you had forgotten to live according to your core values.John D. MacDonald had a way of striking at the heart of things.
