A Quote by Robert Francis Kennedy on belief, courage, diversity, history, hope, idealism, improvement, injustice, energy, oppression, and time

It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

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.
