What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality.
If I were not Alexander, I would be Diogenes.
It is indeed a desirable thing to be well-descended, but the glory belongs to our ancestors.
To find fault is easy; to do better may be difficult.
I don't need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.
