Indifference

The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.

One of John F. Kennedy's favorite quotations, which he attributed to Dante, was that “The hottest places in Hell are reserved for those who in time of moral crisis preserve their neutrality.”Oct 17, 2010
