Girl who dances in a cage

quote of the day

I have some one special who includes a new quote at the end of every e-mail he sends me. One of the quotes he sent me today touched me because it really applies to my life:

I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand
with anybody that stands right, stand with him while he is right, and
part with him when he goes wrong.

I am amazed at the number of people I have had to part with because they went wrong. I have had to let people go because they gossiped, because they made fun of or jokes at the expense of others because they are different, because they were financially irresponsible to the point of putting others at risk, because they weren't truthful or because they were judgmental or critical to the point where they actually went through the trouble of trying to find things wrong with every person and situation in their lives and rejected positive, constructive influences and suggestions.

Please tell me I'm not the only one that has had to part with people when they go wrong. And does anyone know the source of that quote?
