David A. Bednar
Avoiding offense means that we don't accept each other as equals.

Witticisms please as long as we keep them within boundaries, but pushed to excess they cause offense.

People misinterpret my emotions towards Nirvana because I've said things about how something happened with grunge that took a little bit of fun out of things.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
