Do I have an unchanging standard for moral decisions, or do circumstances determine my choices? Do I make difficult decisions, even when they have a personal cost attached to them? “When I lay down the reins of my administration, I want to have one friend left. And that friend is inside of myself.”

Each player has got to be thinking about the next guy.” – Vince Lombardi
