"We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by he oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed."

"Just as Socrates felt that it was necessary to create a tension in the mind...so must we see the need for nonviolent gadflies to create the kind of tension in society that will help men rise from the dark..."

"Nonviolent direct action seeks to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community, which has constantly refused to negotiate, is forced to confront the issue."

"As in so many past experiences, our hopes had been blasted, and the shadow of deep disappointment settled upon us."

"Just as the prophets of the eighth century B.C. left their villages and carried their "thus saith the Lord" far beyond the boundaries of their hometown...I am compelled to carry the gospel of freedom."

"To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law."

"But though I was initially disappointed at being categorized as an extremist, as I continued to think about the matter, I gained a measure of satisfaction from the label."

"But when you see vicious mobs lynch your mothers and fathers at will...then you will understand why it is difficult to wait."
