A Quote by Marian Anderson on people, changing the world, change, change the world, the world, hesitation, dong good, and courage

There are many persons ready to do what is right because in their hearts they know it is right. But, they hesitate, waiting for the other fellow to make the first move--- and he, in turn, waits for you. The minute a person whose word means a great deal dares to take the open-hearted and courageous way, many others follow.
