Dr. Celso Charuri

“Where is a man, if not within the Law that he feels, that he makes? Where is a man, if not within the words? Where does a man live, if not within his ideals? Where does a man live, if not within what he professes? Where does a man live, if not within his actions and reactions?”
Dr. Celso Charuri
October 30, 1980
