people of conscience
"If Rosa Parks had taken a poll before she sat down in the bus in Montgomery, she'd still be standing." -- Mary Frances Berry
AND THIS ONE IS A BEAUTY
Cowardice asks the question, "Is it safe?"
Expediency asks the question, "Is it politic?"
And Vanity comes along and asks the question, "Is it popular?"
But Conscience... Conscience asks the question "Is it right?"
And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular,
but he must do it because it is right.
