My dad always said, 'Champ, the measure of a man is not how often he is knocked down, but how quickly he gets up'.
The greatest gift is the ability to forget — to forget the bad things and focus on the good.
Corruption is just another form of tyranny.
Fighting corruption is not just good governance. It's self-defense. It's patriotism.
No fundamental social change occurs merely because government acts. It's because civil society, the conscience of a country, begins to rise up and demand — demand — demand change.
Failure at some point in your life is inevitable, but giving up is unforgivable.
Corruption is a cancer: a cancer that eats away at a citizen's faith in democracy, diminishes the instinct for innovation and creativity; already-tight national budgets, crowding out important national investments. It wastes the talent of entire generations. It scares away investments and jobs.
