Place me behind prison walls - walls of stone ever so high, ever so thick, reaching ever so far into the ground. There is a possibility that in some way or another I may be able to escape.

Be yourself, but always your better self.
Not only will you be held accountable for the things you do, but you will be held responsible for the very thoughts you think.
He who cheats others is a knave, but he who cheats himself is a fool.
Make the wise man within you your living ideal.
