"Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of."
(Benjamin Franklin)

"We go farther, faster, when we go together."
(Martin Luther King Jr.)

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
(Margaret Mead)

"Gladly would [they] learn and gladly would [they] teach."
(Geoffrey Chaucer, updated for gender inclusion)

"If we think the people not enlightened enough to exercise power with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take power from them, but to inform their discretion through education. We must preach, my dear sir, a crusade against ignorance, for a nation that expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never was and never will be."
(Thomas Jefferson)
