We're like a good pair of jeans. If we take care of them, they'll remain classic forever, but if we batter and abuse them they'll look like tattered old rags.
The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those who love the Lord will be added unto them in his own way.

Joseph B. Wirthlin

We know that dismantling old oppressive regimes is a great deal faster and easier than building new flourishing democracies.
