"Born to loving parents and grandparents, we imagine that the world is full of people who will place our happiness above their own. We discover, if we are lucky in our lives, that there is exactly one more."
"Youthful idealism is the belief that that portion of our parents' wealth not being used to put us through college should be distributed among the needy of the world."
"Often what seems a kindness is just someone acting in their official capacity as a human being."
"Be careful of selfish motives. You can mistake them for principles and end up dying for them."
"There is seldom a martyr to a cause fully understood."
"Separating your prejudices from your principles is a bit like eliminating flaws from your character. You can only hope that there is something left."
