If you have principles only when it's easy then you don't have principles
Mighty Mouse
If you hold to your principles only when it is convenient, only when you approve, only when it is not painful, if you say, "I believe in the freedom of religion but, come on!", (Mr. Eric Cantor) then you don't have principles and your morality is most probably one of convenience as your self proclaimed principles are.  I have heard a commentator say "If they want to come in peace, then why are they pushing this against all the opposition?"  Ghandi came to the British in peace and when faced with hostility he did not turn around and go home.  He continued to peacefully resist the hostility (and violence) until the those who were being hostile recognized the error of their actions and the rights that they were trampling upon.
