They came first for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the trade
unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for me and by that time no one was left to speak up.
The death of
democracy is not likely to be an assassination from ambush. It will be a
slow extinction from apathy, indifference, and undernourishment.
Robert M. Hutchins
Cowardice asks the question - is it safe?
Expediency asks the question - is it politic? Vanity asks the question -
is it popular? But conscience asks the question - is it right? And there
comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor
politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right.
