    Before you handed someone power, you had to ask yourself if you’d be happy with the worst possible thing they could ever do with it.

    Saw some photography quotes in a YouTube video that I particularly liked:

    "All the technique in the world doesn't compensate for the inability to notice."
    - Elliot Erwitt

    "If a photographer cares about the people before the lens and is compassionate, much is given.
    It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument."
    - Eve Arnold

    The good thing about studying in a catholic school is you get some great quotes to go along with your education!

    "Non Multa, Sed Multum."
    (Translates to "Not Many, but Much.")
