    The time is always right to do the right thing.
    —Martin Luther King, Jr.

    People shouldn’t be afraid to ask questions or speak up because I always feel that their professional opinion is not only important, it’s their responsibility.
    —Allan McDonald

    Don’t assume that if it’s really critical other people will always do their job.
    —Allan McDonald
