A Critique of a Maxim. Of Confidence. Of Appearance.

The maxim says, “Competence is better than confidence; and truth, more than the appearance of things.”

What a waste, though, when insight stays inside, when speed runs in circles, when eloquence spends itself on self-deprecation, when good news is hoarded for oneself!

Competence implies confidence and is mere possibility without it. And truth is indeed more than appearances, but what is its glory without its revelation?
