“I prefer peace. But if trouble must come, let it come in my time, so that my children can live in peace.” Thomas Paine
Strong men create good times.
Good times produce weak men.
Weak men create bad times.
Bad times forge strong men.
Let us have the difficulties so that our children can have peace and prosperity.
Place the burden on me, not on them.
We shall not break nor despair, and the dark we triumph over shall give our children light and epic tales to live up to.
Be strong in the face of trouble.
