Taking a position because it is right

I dedicate the publishing of these quotations to those who are giving their lives to help North Korean refugees, as well as speaking out on the atrocities of North Korea, and to all those who have taken a position to work in some way on behalf of the world’s poor and downtrodden:

"Cowardice asks the question: is it safe? Expediency asks the question: is it politic? Vanity asks the question: is it popular? 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 one must take it simply because it is right.” - Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Greater love has no man than this, that he lays down his own life for others.” - Jesus Christ
