"No one must ever let power or social, economic, or political interest turn him or her away from other human beings, from the attention they deserve and the respect they are entitled to. nothing must ever lead to a person to compromise this principle or faith in favour of a political strategy aimed at saving or protecting a community from some peril. The freely offered, sincere heart of a poor, powerless individual is worth a thousand times more in the sight of God than the assiduously courted, self-interested heart of a rich one."
— Tariq Ramadan (via arzitekt)
"But let us never forget that for every angry mob, there are millions who yearn for the freedom, and dignity, and hope that our flag represents."
— President Barack Obama
