Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
C. S. Lewis
This inaugurates a new Staying Strong Feature. Remembering What Matters is one of the daily Emotional Fitness Exercises. This feature sends a daily quote about what matters. Practice this exercise by taking a calming breathe–breathing in, holding, breathing out, smiling –and then focusing as you read the quote; when you have read the quote spend a minute about what it suggests matters. End the exercise by taking another calming breathe and going on with your day.
