Tell the truth boldly, whether it hurts or not. Never pander to weakness. If truth is too much for intelligent people and sweeps them away, let them go; the sooner the better.
Peace at home is peace in the country. Peace in the country is peace in the world.
Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.
In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
