No generous mind delights to oppress the weak, but rather to cherish and protect.
Being nice doesn't necessarily mean you're weak. You can be nice and be strong at the same time. That's a character trait that we need more in Washington.

Martin Van Buren
He who believes is strong; he who doubts is weak. Strong convictions precede great actions.
Louisa May Alcott
The superior man is the providence of the inferior. He is eyes for the blind, strength for the weak, and a shield for the defenseless. He stands erect by bending above the fallen. He rises by lifting others.
Robert Green Ingersoll
