“Civilization is a method of living and an attitude of equal respect for all people.”
“As long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be down there to hold him down, so it means you cannot soar as you otherwise might.”
“I would rather die a meaningful death than live a meaningless life.”
“Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.”
“You can stand tall without standing on someone. You can be a victor without having victims.”
“We cannot afford not to fight for growth and understanding, even when it is painful, as it is bound to be.”
“Self-respect cannot be hunted…. It comes to us when we are alone, in quiet moments, in quiet places, when we suddenly realize that, knowing the good, we have done it; knowing the beautiful, we have served it; knowing the truth, we have spoken it.”
“If you can’t change your fate, change your attitude.” AMY TAN
“The willingness to accept responsibility for one’s own life is the source from which self- respect springs.”
