Do The Right Thing Quotes

If it were easier to choose to do the right thing, wouldn't people be more likely to do it?

Why don't we work together to create a better world and bring hope! -- Robert Alan Silverstein

But Every act of compassion makes a difference! -- Robert Alan Silverstein

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

There is a time in every man's education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better for worse as his portion . . . It is the harder because you will always find those who think they know what is your duty better than you know it. It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Civilization can only revive when there shall come into being in a number of individuals a new tone of mind, independent of the prevalent one among the crowds, and in opposition to it -- a tone of mind which will gradually win influence over the collective one, and in the end determine its character.
