"Let us have faith that right makes might; and in that faith let us to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it" (Abraham Lincoln, Address at Cooper Union, New York).
"If you hear that someone is speaking ill of you, instead of
trying to defend yourself you should say: "He obviously does
not know me very well, since there are so many other faults
he could have mentioned" (Epictetus).
