The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
This means that a man doesn’t stand in comfort and give up during the difficulties. A real man stands during the challenges  and is able to face any obstacles that will come in life.  We stand together as men and women facing obstacles in relationship with one another and finding real meaning in solving the problems of life together.  Anything worthwhile in life is most likely connected to other people in some way.  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood up for others during difficult times.
Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
This quote means that more darkness cannot make it less dark, which is something only bringing light can accomplish. Darkness is a lack of light. Hate cannot drive hate from your heart or the hearts of others , the only thing which can do that, according to the quote, is love.  In our community we have our own motto called, “Family, Love and Respect”. This motto is very important, not only for our school, but for the whole world. It is very important to e motivated by love. Today, there are many tragedies that have been happening all over the world. Many people are being killed because of hate and lack of understanding. With love, we can have a peaceful and better life.  With love we can face the suffering of life together and in it we can find lasting joy.
