- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

Far better is it to dare mighty things,

- Theodore Roosevelt

Cowardice asks the question - is it safe?
Expediency asks the question - is it politic?

but one must take it BECAUSE it is right.

of feeling safe with a person;
having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words,

chaff and grain together,
knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them,
keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
- George Eliot

while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

You are not your mind. You, a Spiritual BEing,
are neither your mind nor your body.
Mind and body are your tools - to use as you choose.
Sometimes your body appears to have a will of its own,
as when it twitches or pains.
Likewise, your mind often appears to have its own will.
That incessant chattering of regret, disappointment, guilt,
shame, foreboding, worry, and fear
is your Rattlesnake Mind striking off on its own.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

for then both parties nobly are subdued,

a society can be understood without understanding both.
