He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Why is it that we rejoice at a birth and grieve at a funeral? It is because we are not the person involved. Mark Twain
