Wise words by others

"The American ideal is not that we all agree with each other, or even like each other, every minute of the day. It is rather that we will respect each other's rights, especially the right to be different, and that, at the end of the day, we will understand that we are one people, one country, and one community, and that our well-being is inextricably bound up with the well-being of each and every one of our fellow citizens." --Arthur J. Kropp, former U.S. Surgeon General

"The test of courage comes when we are in the minority: the test of tolerance comes when we are in the majority." --Ralph W. Stockman

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius to move in the opposite direction." - Albert Einstein
