Bad                     Good
Alexandr Solzhenitsyn

Engrave this Quote It was only when I lay there on the rotting prison straw that I sensed within myself the fIrst stirrings of good. Gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil passes not between states nor between social classes nor between political parties, but right through every human heart, through all human hearts. And that is why I turn back to the years of my imprisonment and say, sometimes to the astonishment of those about me, bless you, prison, for having been a part of my life.
quoted by Vice Admiral James B. Stockdale in his talk entitled: The Stoic Warrior's Triad: Tranquility, Fearlessness, and Freedom.
-Alexandr Solzhenitsyn, Gulag Archipelago Tell a Friend
