And by the same token, overestimating strength is a weakness. You should not be blinded by your strengths. The feeling of strength is not the same as having strength. Neither should you ignore your weaknesses. Know them well, too. — Joseph M. Marshall III

And always remember that anything that causes the shadow is smaller than the source of light. — Joseph M. Marshall III
