“We are who we are because somebody loved us.” – Travis Smiley

“No lie can live forever. Cowardice asks is it safe, expediency asks is it politic, vanity asks is it popular, but conscience asks is it right. And every now and then we must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must do it because one’s conscience – Travis Smiley
