We hope this child will be strong enough to know when she is weak, and brave enough to face herself when she is afraid. That she will be proud and unbending in honest defeat, but humble and gentle in victory. We hope that she learns to stand up in a storm. Learns compassion for those who fall and has the insight to know herself.
-General Douglas MacArthur
