Only the wisest and stupidest of men never change.
They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom.
The faults of a superior person are like the sun and moon. They have their faults, and everyone sees them; they change and everyone looks up to them.
When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves.
Viktor E. Frankl
I can imagine the writers of China, England and France, crippled and unsure of themselves when they feel that the ghosts of Confucius, Mencius, Chaucer and Shakespeare and Victor Hugo are looking over their shoulders.
