- Is war ever worth fighting?
- Mankind does not deserve saving, but we should save it anyway.
- Men are more than their baser qualities.
- We all have hatred and love, anger and compassion… but love and compassion are the more powerful forces.
- The ugliness in the world comes from mankind following its baser urges.
- Everyone is fighting his or her own battles, but they still have the potential to do great things.
- During challenging times, friendship can be a saving force.
- Men and women are equals.
- War is nothing to hope for.
- When you see an injustice, you should do something.
- Legacy is part of what defines us.
- How do you love and be heroic in a complex world?
- The shortcomings and injustices of a society are more readily observable to an outsider than to an insider.
- Each of us can change the world if we have the strength to take on the challenge.
- No matter how ugly this world gets that we live in, no matter how much death we encounter, no matter how many homicidal dictators are out there, no matter how much genocide happens, how many wars happen… there is still hope in the best parts of ourselves to be good and to protect one another and to do right by one another.
- Faith is most important precisely when we see no reason to believe anymore.
- Mercy is most necessary for those who have no other hope except the mercy of others with the power to bestow mercy.
