“Listen to your conscience.
Don’t be afraid not to join the mob
if you feel inside it’s wrong.
Don’t confuse being ‘soft’
with seeing the other guy’s point of view.
… Avoid self-righteously turning on a friend,
but have your friendship mean enough
that you would be willing to share
with your friend your judgment.
Don’t assign away your judgment
to achieve power.”
~ George H.W. Bush more
“The greatest conflicts are not between two people
but between one person and himself.”
~ Garth Brooks
“Remember that consciousness is power.
Consciousness is education and knowledge.
Consciousness is becoming aware.
It is the perfect vehicle for students.
Consciousness-raising is pertinent for power,
and be sure that power will not be abusively used,
but used for building trust and goodwill
domestically and internationally.
Tomorrow’s world is yours to build.”
~ Yuri Kochiyama more
“More important than your obligation to follow your conscience,
or at least prior to it,
is your obligation to form your conscience correctly.”
~ Justice Antonin Scalia
“We must resolve now to live as nobly and as justly as possible,
as we educate new generations
not to turn their back on our ‘neighbors’
and everything around us.”
~ Pope Francis more
“There is a rule of life,
and there is a rule of the government of Hungary.
And if these two rules are conflicting,
we have to choose the rule of life.”
~ Ferenc Gyurcsány more
“My father said
there were two kinds of people in the world:
givers and takers.
The takers may eat better,
but the givers sleep better.”
