Simulated disorder postulates perfect discipline; simulated fear postulates courage; simulated weakness postulates strength.
I tremble for my country when I hear of confidence expressed in me. I know too well my weakness, that our only hope is in God.
Robert E. Lee
The acknowledgment of our weakness is the first step in repairing our loss.
Thomas a Kempis

Fulton J. Sheen
