The Curious Autodidact

Take a Position

Filed under: social justice,Word Related — Honilima @ 11:46 pm

Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’

Expediency asks the question, ‘Is it politic?’
Vanity asks the question, ‘Is it popular?’
But conscience asks the question, ‘Is it right?’

And there comes a point when one must take a position that is
neither safe, nor politic, nor popular,
but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one that
it is right.
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
