Indignation Quotations

If you want to be a real human being - a real woman, a real man - you cannot tolerate things which put you to indignation, to outrage. You must stand up. I always say to people, 'Look around; look at what makes you unhappy, what makes you furious, and then engage yourself in some action.'
Stephane Hessel

One's life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation and compassion.
