Thinking is one thing no one has ever been able to tax.
One fails forward toward success.
Believe and act as if it were impossible to fail.
High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.
Whether the mask is labeled Fascism, Democracy, or Dictatorship of the Proletariat, our great adversary remains the Apparatus — the bureaucracy, the police, the military. Not the one facing us across the frontier or the battle lines, . . . but the one that calls itself our protector and makes us its slaves. No matter what the circumstances, the worst betrayal will always be to subordinate ourselves to this Apparatus, and to trample underfoot, in its service, all human values in ourselves and in others.
There is no passion like that of a functionary for his function.
