Friends Digest Vol. 2, No. 8
"Cowardice asks the question — Is it safe? Expediency asks
the question –Is it politic? Vanity asks the question — Is it
popular? But conscience asks the question — Is it right? And there
comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor
politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right." —
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
