"Courage is an inner resolution to go forward despite obstacles. Cowardice is submissive surrender to circumstances.
Courage breeds creatvitiy; Cowardice represses fear and is mastered by it.
Cowardice asks the question, is it safe?
Expediency asks the quesiton, is it politic?
Vanity asks the question, is it popular?
But, conscience asks the question, is it right? And there comes a time when we 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.
