There is greatness in the smallest of actions, if only we pause to recognize what is easier to overlook. 

The fool praise the oak and belittle the acorn.

Mind the acorn and the oak will stand in its own. 

With naïveté do we inhale without understanding of how to exhale.

A good story is part struggle and part success. A great story is pure struggle.

Courage, not without the goading of desperation.

There are but two ways to display power: the power we give, the power we lose.

《On the Mathematics of Power》
The power of negation is seen in the struggle for power.
The power of subtraction is seen in the misuse of power.
The power of addition is seen in the joining of power.
The power of multiplication is seen in the giving of power.
