Nothing is more obstinate than a fashionable consensus.
You may have to fight a battle
more than once to win it.
It pays to know the enemy—not least because at some time you may have the opportunity to turn him into a friend.
If you just set out to be liked,
you would be prepared to compromise on anything at any time,
and you would achieve nothing.
Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end.
It’s not a day when you lounge around doing nothing;
it’s when you’ve had everything to do, and you’ve done it.
