The secret of happiness is freedom, and the secret of freedom, courage.
As the world goes, right is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.
For it is a habit of mankind to entrust to careless hope what they long for, and to use sovereign reason to thrust aside what they do not fancy.
Be convinced that to be happy means to be free and that to be free means to be brave. Therefore do not take lightly the perils of war.
