The price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.

Gain your strength

The more you feel your weakness, the more you gain your strength. Every moment you invest in pushing through the weakness is rewarded by added strength.

If you’re out of shape and you walk up a steep hill, being out of shape is not just a concept. You feel it throughout your body.

Yet when you get to the top of the hill, something important has happened. You have become stronger.

Each time you climb that hill, you get even stronger. Every time you experience your weakness and work through that weakness, you gain new strength.

There is no reason to be ashamed of or dismayed by your weakness. Choose instead to be motivated by it, to see weakness as the opportunity it is.

Weakness is strength that has not yet been claimed. Work on the weakness, work through the weakness, and the strength is yours.

— Ralph Marston
