A Quote by Robert Francis Kennedy on bravery, change, courage, intelligence, quality, society, world, and yielding

Few are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change.

A Quote by Robert Francis Kennedy on apathy, boldness, commitment, contentment, courage, future, idealism, ideas, passion, problems, projects, reason, society, and timidity

The future does not belong to those who are content with today, apathetic toward common problems and their fellow man alike, timid and fearful in the face of bold projects and new ideas. Rather, it will belong to those who can blend passion, reason and courage in a personal commitment to the ideals of American society.
