“Only yesterday I was no different than them, yet I was saved. I am explaining to you the way of life of a people who say every sort of wicked thing about me because I sacrificed their friendship [approval, acceptance] to gain my own soul. I left the dark paths of their duplicity and turned my eyes toward the light where there is salvation, truth, and justice. They have exiled me now from their society, yet I am content. Mankind [families] only exiles the one whose large spirit rebels against injustice and tyranny. [S]he who does not prefer exile to servility is not free in the true and necessary sense of freedom.” ― Kahlil Gibran
