The injuries that befall us unexpectedly are less severe than those which are deliberately anticipated.
We are born to unite with our fellow men, and to join in community with the human race.

A tear dries quickly when it is shed for troubles of others.
The fatherland is the common parent of us all. - Patria est communis omnium parens
