Be the change that you wish to see in the world.

An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.

When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always.

Where there is love there is life.

Nobody can hurt me without my permission.
