Ralph Nader: Integrity is the purest expression of honesty.
You can’t dig up dirt in a clean kitchen.
In the service of justice, all men come clean.
To change the world you first have to risk change.
A man is trapped atop his house when a raging flood sweeps it into the swollen river, so he prays for God to save him. Soon thereafter a man in a canoe comes by and offers to give him a lift.
“No thanks,” says the man on the rooftop.
A bit later a houseboat pulls up. “Quick! Jump on,” says the houseboat captain.
“No thank you,” answers the man atop the floating house.
It’s not long before a motorboat rumbles up beside the house. “Climb down from there!” the motorboat driver shouts.
“Thanks, but no,”says the man on the roof, “I prayed to God for Him to save me!”
Within an hour the house sinks and the man drowns. When he arrives at Heaven’s gate he personally confronts God.
“Hey! What gives? I prayed for you to come save me, but you never came!”
“Whaddya mean?” God says. “I sent three boats!”
Just because you are a herd animal doesn’t mean you have to vote like one.
Make the world a better place to live in or live with the result.
