“And if you choose to hold fast to what is right, do not be irked by difficult circumstances, but reflect on how many things have already happened to you in life in ways that you did not wish, and yet they have turned out for the best.” — Musonius Rufus 1st Century A.D.
The compulsion to choose expediency over integrity is heightened in uncertain times. Don’t give in. Don’t give up. Reject acquiescent thinking and apply yourself to dignified solutions that reconcile your negative thoughts and feelings with the potential for positive action.
