“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

“Opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge;
it requires no accountability, no understanding.
The highest form of knowledge,
according to George Eliot,
is empathy,
for it requires us to suspend our egos
and live in another’s world.
It requires profound,
purpose?larger?than?the?self
kind of understanding.”
~ William Bullard more
