It isn't enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it. One must work at it.

You must do the things you think you cannot do.

Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being. With freedom comes responsibility. For the person who is unwilling to grow up, the person who does not want to carry is own weight, this is a frightening prospect.

One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes... and the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.

We are afraid to care too much, for fear that the other person does not care at all.
