No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.

It is like the sun - you can't block it: it will shine regardless, if that is what you want.
I believe that it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. And I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant.
