Example has more followers than reason. We unconsciously imitate what pleases us, and approximate to the characters we most admire.

The other thing is that if you rely solely on medication to manage depression or anxiety, for example, you have done nothing to train the mind, so that when you come off the medication, you are just as vulnerable to a relapse as though you had never taken the medication.
For example, I was a White House intern the summer before I dropped out of law school. Everybody knew about it. I'd come home and go to church and everybody would say, 'Oh, my God. Demetri, you're working at the White House.'

Example is the best precept.

Ironing boards are a classic example of something I find horrible about modern society: the excitementation, for want of a better word, of mundane things.
Parents must lead by example. Don't use the cliche; do as I say and not as I do. We are our children's first and most important role models.
That's all a man can hope for during his lifetime - to set an example - and when he is dead, to be an inspiration for history.
I never had a speech from my father 'this is what you must do or shouldn't do' but I just learned to be led by example. My father wasn't perfect.
I'm 65 and I guess that puts me in with the geriatrics. But if there were fifteen months in every year, I'd only be 48. That's the trouble with us. We number everything. Take women, for example. I think they deserve to have more than twelve years between the ages of 28 and 40.

For Obama to save himself, he should be thinking about the example of an unlikely Republican predecessor: Richard Nixon.
We need responsible regulations, not regulations that have gone wild. For example, the EPA has a rule that is going to be implemented Jan. 1, 2012, where they're going to begin to regulate dust. That's right, dust. It's called PM 2.5. That is focusing on the wrong thing.
