I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother, but to fight my greatest enemy – myself. Be brave where bravery is honorable. Man has responsibility, not power. Speak the truth to all people. Give me knowledge, so I may have kindness for all. The more you give, the more good things come to you. Be kind to everything that lives. We will be known forever by the tracks we leave.
