No one feels strong when she examines her own weakness. But in facing weakness, you learn how much there is in you, and you find real strength.
The lesson of the Cuban Missile Crisis is plain: Strength prevents war; weakness invites it. We need a commander-in-chief who understands that - and who won't leave us facing a foe who thinks he doesn't.
Deliver us from evil - from moral duplicity and weakness, from laziness and spiritual complacency, from those lies we tell ourselves from our fear of facing the truth.
Facing facts is always empowering.
The acknowledgment of our weakness is the first step in repairing our loss.
Thomas a Kempis
