Be strong enough to stand alone, be yourself enough to stand apart but be wise enough to stand together when the time comes. Hard being a wolf between domestic dogs, but soon you'll return to the pack you can call your own.
Plato understood that you cannot legislate good behavior! The actual translation of the quote is "Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws." - Plato B.
