497 – “There are many ways to silence young people and make them invisible. Many ways to anesthetize them, to make them keep quiet, ask nothing, question nothing. There are many ways to sedate them, to keep them from getting involved, to make their dreams flat and dreary, petty and plaintive. … Dear young people, you have it in you to shout.”

–Pope Francis, Bishop of Rome



448 – “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”

–W L Sheldon [Often falsely attributed to Ernest Hemingway, see Source Notes]
