• I must uphold my ideals, for perhaps the time will come when I shall be able to carry them out. — Anne Frank (1929-1945) German autobiographer
There are two ‘faiths’ which can uphold humans: faith in God and faith in oneself. And these two faiths should exist side by side: the first belongs to one’s inner life, the second to one’s life in society. — Maria Montessori (1870-1952) Italian physician & educator
• When men carry the same ideals in their hearts, nothing can isolate them – neither prison walls nor the sod of cemeteries. For a single memory, a single spirit, a single idea, a single conscience, a single dignity will sustain them all. — Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz (1926–2016) Cuban revolutionary politician
