Human beings are so fragile that there is no human power that can fight against this enormous enemy that is death. We are so vulnerable that today we are and tomorrow we are not, it is essential to strengthen qualities such as humility, because as soon as we are above we are below. Positions of authority should never make one person greater than others.
