8. No, Good does not always lose.

Good is just much harder, as one commenter noted.

"Evil triumphs when good people do nothing," to paraphrase the famous quote, and this is the more difficult truth.

Good must be more consistent, more disciplined, and more honest. And Good creates boundries and standards, while Evil disrupts and degrades without self-imposed rules of any kind.

Yes, Good is the harder path; this is why being Good is not a sign of weakness, as Evil would like to believe, and would like you to believe, but rather a sign of great strength.

Evil's victories are short-lived and immediately gratifying, while Good is a steady and long process, with few immediatley visible rewards.

So take heart! And, perhaps, think about these quotes, as I do, when the load becomes heavy:

"Become the change you want to see." -- Muhatma Ghandi

"HATE! In it's mightiest roar, will never accomplish what does LOVE, in it's smallest whisper." -- D.J. Dupree
