Morality is of the highest importance – but for us, not for God.
The world always makes the assumption that the exposure of an error is identical with the discovery of truth–that the error and truth are simply opposite. They are nothing of the sort. What the world turns to, when it is cured on one error, is usually simply another error, and maybe one worse than the first one.
Go after a man’s weakness, and never, ever, threaten unless you’re going to follow through, because if you don’t, the next time you won’t be taken seriously.
A man who enjoys responsibility usually gets it. A man who merely likes exercising authority usually loses it.
A reputation once broken may possibly be repaired, but the world will always keep their eyes on the spot where the crack was.
