Moral cowardice that keeps us from speaking our minds is as dangerous as irresponsible talk.
The right way is not always the popular and easy way.
Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character.
Margaret Chase Smith
From the cowardice that shrinks from new truth, from the laziness that is content with half-truths, deliver us.
The ability to pursue a course,
Whether it is a popular one or not, is measured in courage.
The greater the courage, the greater the possibility we will act for change.
Mildred Pitts Walter
From “The Horn Book”
