Envy not those who have wide rule, but those who rule aright. Perfect happiness consists in doing one's duty and having moderate desires. Make friends who will help you to rule well, not those who will amuse your leisure. Remember that you will be judged by your friends, and that you are responsible for the acts of your subordinates.
