Another good quote

In midst of the petty pomposity and the high moral tone that is masquerading as debate today, Patrick Harvie's speech was good and Malcolm Chisholm's speech was good, but I'd like to highlight a quote used by Tricia Marwick MSP:
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 one's conscience tells one that it is right.
Martin Luther King
