If anyone asks me, the meaning of our flag, I say to him — it means just what Concord and Lexington meant; what Bunker Hill meant; which was, in short, the rising up of a valiant young people against an old tyranny to establish the most momentous doctine that the world had ever known — the right of people to their own selves and to their liberties. (Salute to our country on FLAG DAY!)
Don’t ever mistake my silence for ignorance, my calmness for acceptance, or my kindness from weakness. When you judge without knowing me, you do not define me, you define yourself.
You are only going to be as good as the people you surround yourself with. So be brave enough to let go of those who keep weighing you down.
If they respect you, respect them. If they disrespect you, you still respect them. Do not allow the actions of others to decrease your good manners because you represent yourself, not others.
In what you say of another, apply the test of kindness, necessity, truth, and let nothing pass your lips without a 2/3 majority.
