Suit or Man?

“Does the man make the suit… or the suit make the man?” ~ Ironman

I stumbled upon this quote on the dvd cover of Ironman 3. Yes, this is Toby’s latest craze.. hence I happened to pick up the dvd to have a closer look at it.

But this quote really stuck me. If you have watched Ironman 3, you would realise that this is the reason why he decided to leave his superhero identity – he no longer can tell who is leading who. What about us? Are we allowing our ‘position’/ ‘title’/ ‘talent’ to define us and our identity? Or are we using what we have to lead the lives we want to? The bottomline is – be who we are and who we are called to be (period).
