Emerging from a long-weekend here in Singapore due to Hari Raya Haji (a celebration of the conclusion of the Haj pilgrimage to Meccaa by devout Muslims), two quotes to start off this shortened week:

“Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’ Expediency asks the question,’Is it politic?’ 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 because conscience tells one it is right.”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“When the task becomes too great, the hill too hard to climb, pause a minute and remember why you started.”
