It is the unexpected situation, when there is no time to calculate a response or prepare a reply, that reveals what measure of strength we can rise to. It is in the sudden crisis--which is only a situation pushed to a complete extreme--when there is no chance to escape altogether or to evade partially, that what wisdom we have, or lack, shows itself.
