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

I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.--Elie Wiesel

It's good to stand for something, to believe in something and base your business on values.--Jerry Greenfield

I want to stand for something, and it's probably going to be something that some people stand against.--Blake Shelton

Don't believe that winning is really everything. It's more important to stand for something. If you don't stand for something, what do you really win?--Lane Kirkland

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.--Winston Churchill

What's your favorite quote about standing for something? Do you have one to add?
