Thanks Annie

This was posted as a comment . I thought written here would be more appropriate.

Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows,the censure of their colleagues,the wrath of their society.Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence .Yet it is the one essential vital quality of those who seek to change a World which yields most painfully to change .If people bring so much courage to this World the World has to kill them or break them so of course it kills them.The World breaks everyone and afterwards many are strong at the broken places.But those it will not break it kills .It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially.If you are none of those you can be sure it will kill you too ,but there will be no special hurry " Ernest Hemingway as quoted in Robert F.Kennedy's notebooks .
