Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
The courage of life is often a less dramatic spectacle than the courage of a final moment; but it is no less a magnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy. A man does what he must - in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures - and that is the basis of all morality.
Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.
John F. Kennedy, the first Irish Catholic president of the United States (via irishlovee)
Terrorism is the war of the poor, and war is the terrorism of the rich.
To hold a pen is to be at war.
