These explain my refusal to support any candidate or political party I do not respect:
- “When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost.” — German proverb
- “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 one must take it because it is right.” — the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
- “Seek not the favor of the multitude. It is seldom got by honest and lawful means. But seek the testimony of the few, and number not the voices but weigh them.” — Emmanuel Kant
