At the risk of becoming the target of that great wit of yours I
wonder if you are familiar with the idea that we can learn from
others' experiences as well as our own? Or that we can improve
ourselves by association in thought word or deed with those who
already possess the virtues we seek?

Lewis: Sounds very Leo-like. Once read a discription of a Leo as one
who keenly senses the royal nature of the soul and demands the same
respect accorded any monarch. However they also magnanimously confer
that respect upon all they meet.
