‘The Duke’ presents lessons in idealism, compassion, discernment

Standing out often means standing alone, especially for proponents of particular causes.

How well do “you” (sometimes called “the localized you,” the version of ourselves with which the majority of us are most familiar) know the totality of your true self?
