“I think that one of our most important tasks is to convince others that there’s nothing to fear in difference; that difference, in fact, is one of the healthiest and most invigorating of human characteristics without which life would become meaningless.  Here lies the power of the liberal way:  not in making the whole world Unitarian, but in helping ourselves and others to see some of the possibilities inherent in viewpoints other than one’s own; in encouraging the free interchange of ideas; in welcoming fresh approaches to the problems of life; in urging the fullest, most vigorous use of critical self-examination.”

~Adlai Stevenson, 1900 – 1965

“I believe it is the duty of each of us to act as if the fate of the world depended on him.  Admittedly, one man by himself cannot do the job.  However, one man can make a difference… We must live for the future of the human race, and not for our own comfort or success.”

~Hyman G. Rickover, 1900 – 1986
