Gallant? Charming?

“The catastrophe that awaits everyone from a single false move, wrong turn, fatal encounter”- “What distinguishes us is whether — and how — we ever come back.” 

Kind of sad today for a good man has died. Yes, he was obviously brilliant but I heard words like “Gallant” & “Charming” spoken of him (and they are not spoken much anymore). Even his adversaries spoke with a hushed respect for him.  He was one of the truly bright ones who knew how to be both honest & civil – embodying truth & grace. And the way he overcame his own adversities was truly noble. I hesitate to say more for we live in incendiary times needing desperately to be more like him. Charles Krauthammer : 1950-2018
