When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.
In a country well governed, poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country badly governed, wealth is something to be ashamed of.
It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.
Without feelings of respect, what is there to distinguish men from beasts?
Silence is a true friend who never betrays.
