Thoughts for Thursday: Taking a Stand

Thoughts for Thursday is a new feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is Taking a Stand!

Standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous; you get knocked down by the traffic from both sides.--Margaret Thatcher

What is the use of being elected or re-elected, unless you stand for something?--Grover Cleveland

There are no independent people. Even when you are standing aside, you are taking a side.--Ljupka Cvetanova, The New Land

It's not what my job is about. I'm not out to make a political statement. I want to stand for something, but more by example.--Lauren Bush

Every fact is related on one side to sensation, and, on the other, to morals. The game of thought is, on the appearance of one of these two sides, to find the other: given the upper, to find the under side.--Ralph Waldo Emerson

What's your favorite quote about taking a stand? Do you have one to add?
