The practice of focusing on the
welfare of others undermines the
usual emphasis on oneself, 
thereby opening the possibility 
of progress toward diminishing 
the self's inflated status.

Daily Zen - Monday, May 28

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 time when 
one must take a position that is neither safe, 
nor politic, nor popular, but he must take 
it because conscience tells him it is right.

~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Most things will be okay eventually,
but not everything will be. Sometimes
you'll put up a good fight and lose.
Sometimes you'll hold on really hard
and realize there is no choice but to 
let go. Acceptance is a small, quiet room.

~ Cheryl Strayed
