Humane Quotes

I hope you find great value in these Quotes about Humane from my large collection of inspirational quotes and motivational sayings.

I strive toward my vision,
while accepting gratefully whatever life serves up.
I work to bring about my vision of the future,
which is based on my value system of what is right,

is based on only my opinions and prejudices,
and I honor all points of view and value systems,
no matter how different from my own.
