If you’re not lifting someone up, you’re holding someone down. 
The easiest way to lose power is to hold onto it. If you want ultimate power, give it to others, empower others. In so doing, not only will you multiply the efforts of you alone, but what effort you do make shall never be forgotten.

Solidarity before compassion;
Compassion before forgiveness;
Forgiveness before peace.

A war of weapons is won with many; a war of words, with few.

If you build a wall around yourself, don’t forget to install a drain.

Words can change your view, but cannot change the facts.

What is not understood hovers subliminally in the background as a camouflaged backdrop; only those who understand are able to see it.

Who understands will see, who overlooks is blinded.

The wise oversee, the fool overlook.
