Robert B. Parker, in the voice of Susan Silverman:
Being tough means looking straight at something ugly and saying, “That’s ugly; I’ll have to find a way to deal with it.” And doing so.
Parker, Robert B., Sixkill (New York: Putnam’s, 2011), p. 89
Ladies and gentlemen, poison doesn’t always come in bottles and it isn’t always marked with the skull and crossbones of danger. . . . As for the antidote, you can fight prejudice, first by recognizing it for what it is and, second, by actively accepting or rejecting people on their individual worth and by speaking against prejudice and for understanding. Remember, freedom and prejudice can’t exist side by side. If you choose freedom, fight prejudice.
