‘As responsibility is passed to your hands, it will not do, as you live the rest of your life, to assume that someone else will bear the major burdens, that someone else will demonstrate the key convictions, that someone else will govern, that someone else will administer to the poor, that someone else will visit the sick, protect civil rights, enforce the law, preserve culture, transmit value, maintain civilisation and defend freedom.
You must never forget that what you do not value will not be valued, that what you do not remember will not be remembered, that what you do not change will not be changed, that what you do not do will not be done… it is not really a question of what to do but simply a question of whether you will”.
