A great man shows his greatness by the way he treats little men.
Let a man try faithfully, manfully to be right, he will daily grow more and more right. It is at the bottom of the condition on which all men have to cultivate themselves.

Over the times thou hast no power. . . . Solely over one man thou hast quite absolute power. Him redeem and make honest.
