Books & Beyond Newark Trip Reflections

“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“This quote serves to distinguish what is included in the ideal life. Dr. King restricts the definition of the ideal life by first defining the act of living.  By making this restriction, he isolates everything worthy of contemplation to the sphere of humanity. – Kody, IU Student

“A person who only thinks about themselves cannot begin to understand the world around them until they are able to take bigger concerns into consideration – Joshua, TEAM Schools student

“One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes…and the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

“Rhetoric gets nothing done, while activism gets things done in real life with real consequences. To me, saying you support a cause is not the same as taking action for the cause.” – David, IU student

“Your philosophy is dependent on actions, not moods.  If you have a philosophy, take part in it, do not just say it.” – Jared, TEAM Schools student
