Novel wisdom 2: internals and externals

More thought-provoking narrative from Christopher Reich:
Judge spent a moment adjusting his tie and combing his hair. He pulled at each cuff, ensuring one inch of cotton protruded beyond the sleeve and no more. He’d be damned if he’s make a lousy impression. Only the Lord could see your heart, he’d been taught. Everyone else judged you by your appearance.
Christopher Reich, The Runner (Headline, 2000), page 29.
