Thick Face; Black Heart

When you conceal your will from others, that is Thick.  When you impose your will on others, that is Black.”  Lee Zhong Chang 

A thick face is the shield; and a black heart is the spear.”

“A thick-faced person has the ability to put self-doubt aside.  He refuses to accept the limitations that others have  tried to impose upon him and, more importantly, he does not accept any of the limitations that we commonly impose on ourselves.  He does not question his ability or his worthiness.”

“Thick Face and Black Heart are two sides of the same coin.  When one possesses the strength of Thick Face, one can ignore criticism and disapproval of the masses. This same strength is also the source of the Black Heart; it allows one to effectively use the spear to cut through the ignorant and preconceived ideas of the masses.”

“A Black Heart is the ability to take action without regard to how the consequences will affect others.”
