Quotes of Wisdom: Martin Luther King on Conscience

martin_luther_king_1

Cowardice asks the question:
“Is it safe”?
Expediency asks the question:
“Is it politic”?
Vanity asks the question:
“Is it 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 what is right.

~ Martin Luther King
