What quotes or sayings have resonated with you. Made you think or changed your views on something.

For some reason this one leapt out at me the other day

“First they came for the Socialists, and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a Jew,
Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak up for me.”
— Pastor Martin Niemoller
