Sometimes I discover quotes that seem to apply to situations today. For Example:
Harper Lee in To Kill A Mockingbird:
They're certainly entitled to think that, and they're entitled to full respect for their opinions... but before I can live with other folks I've got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn't abide may majority rule is a person's conscience.
Marcus Aurelius - Meditations:
Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be.
Frederick Douglass - speeches:
I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.
The ends you serve that are selfish will take you no further than yourself, but the ends you serve that are for all, in common, will take you into eternity.
John E. Lewis:
If not us, then who?
If not now, then when?
