The way in which we meet our greatest challenges is what defines us.
But our ability to make friends with enemies is that which raises us to new heights.
A woman’s best attributes shine most brightly when she aims to please her man. Just like a man’s best attributes shine most brightly when he aims to please his woman. Having one without the other is abject bigotry and forgetting what pleases us is abject denial.
The wax imprint is only seen once the stamp is removed. Such are the marks left in our hearts by those we loved.
Protection is the seed of any civilization.
Without this immovable foundation the columns thereunto erected would seldom fulfill their purpose.
Civilization is the seed of philosophy.
Without this cradle, the spirit of man would have nowhere to rest and would seldom ever wake.
Philosophy is the seed of virtue and the good character of any upright man.
Without this light and guide, man would seldom find his way.
