"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small-minded people
who find it easier to live in the world they have
than to explore their power to change it.
Impossible is not a fact, it's an opinion.
Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare."
"The point is that this man is willing to don a suit and walk with great purpose toward something so greatly more powerful than he, time and time again. It is as if he climbs into a casket and then waits a few minutes to see if he is allowed to live or the hatch will be nailed shut, forever. Rather than dwelling on the horrible finality that could be, he uses deep focus to concentrate on the job he has volunteered to do. The conclusion of a mission is success, and life, for him and others that he supports. Or, being instantly transformed into pulp."
"And maybe just remind the few, if ill of us they speak; that we are all that stands between the monsters and the weak."
"We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm."
"If someone listens, or stretches out a hand, or whispers a word of encouragement, or attempts to understand a lonely person, extraordinary things begin to happen."
"When one who is mistaken hears the truth, they either quit being mistaken or cease to be honest."
"Never condemn another man because his judgement differs from your own. You may both be wrong."
