Toward Healing | Powerful Quotes to Find Our Voice

The isolation of victims of bullying is one of the main factors contributing to the reinforcing loop escalating episodes of bullying. Meaningful quotes can make us feel less alone and also motivate to speak up and find our voice again.

Leonardo da Vinci - 

"All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men [or good women] do nothing." 
Edmund Burke -
