The only solutions that are ever worth anything are the solutions that people find themselves.
Each generation wants new symbols, new people, new names. They want to divorce themselves from their predecessors.
Every man, every woman who has to take up the service of government, must ask themselves two questions: 'Do I love my people in order to serve them better?

People who put themselves on the line and sacrifice their own safety for the greater good and for others, and anyone in any profession whose concern is the welfare for other people instead of the individual, are inspiring and important.
Caregivers attract caregivers and live in a community of love. They are energized by their caring, fulfilled, and they love life. Caretakers attract caretakers and live in the company of resentful victims who see themselves as misused and are fatigued from constant giving with no return.
