The strongest oak of the forest is not the one that is protected from the storm and hidden from the sun. It’s the one that stands in the open where it is compelled to struggle for existence against the winds and rains and the scorching sun.
Freedom of Speech
People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the
freedom of thought which they seldom use.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
“Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all.”
Size of the Dog
It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.
– Mark Twain
