Question of Conscience

“Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’ Expediency asks the question, ‘Is it politic?’ Vanity asks the question, ‘Is is popular?’ But, conscience asks the question, ‘Is it right?’ and there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one that it is right.”
- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

    Thanks alot for visiting my blog, it is not Arabic, my mother tongue Persian.:) by the way I can transfer my feeling in persian better.

  3. Thanks Jeela, and thank you for correcting me about Persian.

    I enjoy the script, it is very beautiful, more beautiful than the Roman Letters I think. But perhaps that is because of my thinking that the grass is greener on the other side?

    It reminds me of Sanskrit, which I attempted to study once, but my life was too crazy at the time. Maybe I will get around to it again though.
