On Being “Nice”

If I don’t come off as “nice” to you, here is why.
Middle English (in the sense ‘stupid’): from Old French, from Latin nescius ‘ignorant’, from nescire ‘not know’. Other early senses included ‘coy, reserved’, giving rise to ‘fastidious, scrupulous’: this led both to the sense ‘fine, subtle’ (regarded by some as the ‘correct’ sense), and to the main current senses.

Men don’t need to be nice in order to be honorable, noble, and wholesome.
However, Men need to be strong in order to have the courage and tenacity to be honorable, foster a noble spirit, and enforce wholesomeness as it right for their folk.
I would rather have the virtue of strength than the weakness of being a “nice” guy.
