Ideas are these disembodied life forms, they don't have a form, but they have a will. All they want is to be made manifest.

The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help them or concluded that you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.
Love doesn't make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.
When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.
