There is a fundamental question we all have to face. How are we to live our lives; by what principles and moral values will we be guided and inspired?
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others. His own good, either physical or moral, is not sufficient warrant.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
