“Look at him; no ribbons, no lace!” Cyrano teaches us old lessons

I don’t think I understood how valuable this was in freshman year English class.

What a strength to have such confidence, and be able to insult yourself better than anyone else.

To know that what others perceive as our weaknesses are actually strengths.

Our value isn’t worn outside, but in our hearts and our actions.

To cultivate the ability to entertain, maintain a sense of humor, and win a room while defending oneself.

These are valuable tools, skills, and abilities for creative activists.

(You can apply the metaphors as needed)
