True: the power of being true to nature and expectation over time; by spiritual extension, the powers of hardness (and hardiness), durability, truth and faith; by physical extension, a tree. An arrow that flies true neither deviates from its path nor from the truth of the tree from which it was cut. It is, in short, the power of flight glued to the power of truth, or, in its more physical form, the power of wood. In the same way, a man or woman of faith is one that stands true, like a tree, despite storm. To say that a thought is true is not to assert its empirical verifiability but to observe that it retains its nature in all situations.
