| Sophistication

  • 1.

    Genuine sophistication has nothing to do with glamour or attractiveness, breeding or class, cultivation or deportment. Nor does it have anything to do with cleverness, etiquette, urbanity, wealth, luxury, or following the so-called, social graces. Rather, these things are often just a veneer of pretentious worldliness, that ignorantly cover the beholders humanity. True worldly sophistication, is founded upon an inner nobility, that has a willingness and empathy, to attempt a wiser day on earth, through understanding others and life. Therefore genuine sophistication is the expression of a truthful character, rather than a posturing facade.
