“The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.”
“There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction.”
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
“The less you respond to rude, critical, argumentative people…the more peaceful your life will become.”
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
“I must be cruel only to be kind; Thus bad begins and worse remains behind.“
“Tolerance of intolerance is cowardice.”
Let the first act of every morning be to make the following resolve for the day:
I shall not fear anyone on Earth.
I shall fear only God.
I shall not bear ill will towards anyone.
I shall not submit to injustice from anyone.
I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering.
The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.
I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.
