The pleasure we feel in criticizing robs us from being moved by very beautiful things.
Jean De La Bruyere
Stop letting people who do so little for you control so much of your mind, feelings, and emotions.
After a while, you learn to ignore the names people call you and just trust who you are.
Remember the unkindness, dishonesty, and deception you display toward others…dont be shocked when it comes back to bite you.
The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.
Martin Luther King
You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say.
If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.
Bullying needs to stop. When will people learn that it’s not okay to be mean to someone just because you don’t like how they were born.
Bullying exists because of a lack of adult intervention.
Fighting means you could lose. Bullying means you can’t. A bully wants to beat somebody; he doesn’t want to fight somebody.
If you can’t, continue to be nice to them. Eventually, they may start being nice. A bully wants to have friends, too.
Cara Van Ness
Bullying consists of the least competent most aggressive employee projecting their incompetence on to the least aggressive most competent employee and winning.
Bullying does much more damage than you’ll ever know. When you have thoughts of bullying or doing or saying anything mean to anyone—don’t do it, just let it go.
Bullying is killing our kids. Being different is killing our kids and the kids who are bullying are dying inside. We have to save our kids whether they are bullied or they are bullying. They are all in pain.
You always have to remember that bullies want to bring you down because you have something that they admire. Also, when you get made fun of-when people point out your weaknesses, it’s an opportunity for you to rise above.
What if the kid you bullied at school, grew up, and turned out to be the only surgeon who could save your life?
Stop Bullying. No one deserves to feel worthless.
Bullying is never fun, it’s a cruel and terrible thing to do to someone. If you are being bullied, it is not your fault. No one deserves to be bullied, ever.
Don’t ever let anyone bring you down, define who you are or destroy your AWESOMENESS.
Words have great power that could make or break others…so please be careful with them.
Children should be able to live a life free from bullying and harassment and it is time that we all took a stand against this.
The common mistake that bullies make is assuming that because someone is nice that he or she is weak. Those traits have nothing to do with each other. In fact, it takes considerable strength and character to be a good person.
Mary Elizabeth William
The whole bullying issue has really struck a nerve with me. It affects so many different types of people at a vital time in their lives.
Now I’m smiling from the stage while you were clapping in the nose bleeds.

Abuse if you slight it, will gradually die away; but if you show yourself irritated, you will be thought to have deserved it.
You don’t have to listen to those mean girls. They’re just there to make you upset and feel bad about yourself. And you know, inside, they feel bad about themselves too. But they don’t wanna admit it to anybody.
Some people won’t be happy until they’ve pushed you to the ground. What you have to do is have the courage to stand your ground and not give them the time of day. Hold on to your power and never give it away.
I would rather be a little nobody in life then to be a evil somebody.
Famous Abe would do anything to not be evil. He obviously felt very strongly about doing good in his life as shown by his many actions, including but not limited to the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863. Abraham Lincoln was so opposed to being evil that he would rather be a nobody in his life, which is probably more than many people can say these days. We definitely need leaders today like Abe Lincoln.
One’s dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but it can never be taken away unless it is surrendered.
Michael J. Fox
The hardest challenge is to be yourself in a world where everyone is trying to make you be someone else.
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself.
Harvey S. Firestone
A bully is playing a game, one that he or she enjoys and needs. You’re welcome to play this game if it makes you happy, but for most people, it will make you miserable.
People who love themselves, don’t hurt other people. The more we hate ourselves, the more we want others to suffer.
When people hurt you over and over, think of them like sand paper; They may scratch and hurt you a bit, but in the end, you end up polished and they end up useless.
