Quote of the Day
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the danger of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity.
Thomas J. Watson
The greater the controversy, the more you need manners.
I'm not an activist; I don't look for controversy. I'm not a political person, but I'm a person with compassion. I care passionately about equal rights. I care about human rights. I care about animal rights.
Global warming is controversial, of course, but the controversy is mainly over whether human activity is driving it.
I don't do things for the response or for the controversy. I just live my life.

I just lead my life as naturally, as normally as I possibly can. But I can't help it if controversy is hounding me day in and day out. I'm quite amazed sometimes by the way they go about it. I grow a beard and it lands up in the editorial in The Times of India.
I enjoy punk, the attitude as well as the music, but I don't feel like I have to be a carbon copy of it and invite all this controversy just to be punk rock.

But we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.
We are not called upon to enter into controversy with those who hold false theories. Controversy is unprofitable. Christ never entered into it.

Ellen G. White

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

John F. Kennedy
