It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.
    —    Confucius
It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
    —     Abraham Lincoln
Excerpt from:  “The Gettysburg Address

Sincerity becomes apparent.  From being apparent, it becomes manifest.  From being manifest, it becomes brilliant.  Brilliant, it affects others.  Affecting others, they are changed by it.  Changed by it, they are transformed.  It is only he who is possessed of the most complete sincerity that can exist under heaven, who can transform.
