Principles and advocacies are like train rides on crowded coaches.
Some opt not to ride the crowded train at all because it’s not comfortable, so they wait for the next train. Some opt to pack themselves inside the train and wedge themselves into the train, just so that they can sit down and be comfortable with the ride, hovering like vultures to see if someone will give up a seat.
Then there are people who realize that there’s nothing to do but to stand inside that train.
There’s nothing to do but to stand inside that train no matter how much it moves, no matter how many people sit down, no matter where you’re going, or no matter how much money there is in your pocket. For you to get somewhere, you have to stand for it. No matter what, principles and advocacies are standing room only.
I reiterate: principles and advocacies are standing room only.
