The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
~ Edmund Burke

Take from us, O God, all pride and vanity, all boasting and self-assertion, and give us the true courage that shows itself in gentleness, the true wisdom that shows itself in simplicity, and the true power that shows itself in modesty.

(Charles Kingsley)
