There are a number of ways through which bullying can be addressed. Changing the culture of a school community takes a multiple level approach. I am a big fan of motivational quotes to inspire myself and others.  Quotes can be used to encourage both the bully and the victim to take a different perspective altogether in addressing bullying.
