Taking Action About Things That Matter


Our lives begin to end the day we become silent
about things that matter.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

To be free is not merely to cast off one's chains,
but to live in a way that respects
and enhances the freedom of others.
- Nelson Mandela

Safeguarding the rights of others is the most noble
and beautiful end of a human being.
- Khalil Gibran

If you are neutral in situations of injustice,
you have chosen the side of the oppressor.
If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse
and you say that you are neutral,
the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.
- Desmond Tutu

The truth of the matter is that
you always know the right thing to do.
The hard part is doing it.
- Norman Schwarzkoff

When the rights of any group, no matter how small, no matter how marginal,
are violated, your liberty, your freedom is put at risk.
Let there never be a day when we cast about in horror
and have to ask the question, "How did it ever come to this?"
- Thomas Childers

Do your little bit of good where you are;
its those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
- Desmond Tutu
