Simply Sunday is a weekly reading meme held over at Books for a Delicate Eternity. It’s where you can share your favourite quote of the week; be it from a book, novella, a short story, a song, a poem – whatever you like! I have decided to use my favourite quote from my current read each week.
“I trust you with their lives,’ Prof said, still writing, ‘and them with yours. Don’t betray that trust, son. Keep your impulses in check. Don’t just act because you can; act because it’s the right thing to do. If you keep that in mind, you’ll be all right.”
– Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
Why this quote?
I love the simplicity of this. I feel that we should all try to act because it is the right thing to do not just because we can – humanity would be much stronger, the world might even be a nicer place.
