“We need in every community a group of angelic troublemakers. Our power is in our ability to make things unworkable. The only weapon we have is our bodies, and we need to tuck them in places so wheels don’t turn”      - Bayard Rustin ; Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin


"I did not want to be mistreated, I did not want to be deprived of a seat that I had paid for. It was just time . . . there was opportunity for me to take a stand to express the way I felt about being treated in that manner. I had not planned to get arrested. I had plenty to do without having to end up in jail. But when I had to face that decision, I didn't hesitate to do so because I felt that we had endured that too long. The more we gave in, the more we complied with that kind of treatment, the more oppressive it became."    - Rosa Parkes ; Excerpts from an interview with Lynn Neary, National Public Radio (1992)


"A protest against injustice and violence is incomparably more valuable if it comes entirely from people who have been prompted to it purely by sentiments of humanity and a love of justice."    - Albert Einstein ; The World As I See It


"When the fear of jail disappears, repression puts heart into the people."    - Gandhi ; The Onion Thief
