On Strength

When you look back on your actions you will see that you were your least understanding, most cruel, most vicious not when you were strongest but when you were the most desperate, the most tired, the most lost, possessed the least sense of meaning and purpose.

This does not excuse the choices that were made, for many others did not make the same choices under worse conditions, it is merely meant to show that strength is not represented through cruelty, but through compassion, empathy and active care for others.

The strongest carry the weak until they are strong again. Cruelty and contempt represent frailty of character, whereas compassion, love and active-care represent strength of character. Creation always requires more energy than destruction.
