our finest hours...(Maxwell)

Men's and nations' finest hours consist of those moments when extraordinary challenge is met by extraordinary response.  Hence in those darkest hours, we must light our individual candles rather than vying with others to call attention to the enveloping darkness.  Our indignation about injustice should lead to illumination, for if it does not, we are only adding to the despair--and the moment of gravest danger is when there is so little light that darkness seems normal.


Neal A. Maxwell, The Smallest Part, p. 75
