„Ненависть — это слишком тяжёлая ноша. Она ранит того, кто ненавидит, сильнее, чем того, кого ненавидят.“

„Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism
and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to
dehumanize a large group of people, to deny
their humanity, their dignity and personhood.“


„Hate is too great a burden to bear. It injures the hater more than it injures the hated.“

„Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood. This sets the stage for further repression and violence that spread all too easily to victimize the next minority group.“

„When Good Friday comes, these are the moments in life when we feel there's no hope. But then, Easter comes.“

„If American women increase their voting turnout by ten percent, I think we would see an end to all of the budget cuts in programs benefiting women and children.“

„I often wonder whether or not education is fulfilling its purpose. A great majority of the so-called education people do not think logically and scientifically. Even the press, the classroom, the platform, and the pulpit in many instances do not give us objective and unbiased truths. To save man from the morass of propaganda, in my opinion, is one of the chief aims of education. Education must enable one to sift and weigh evidence, to discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal, and the facts from fiction.“ The Words of Martin Luther King, Jr.

„Struggle is a never ending process. Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation.“

„Like life, racial understanding is not something that we find but something that we must create. And so the ability of Negroes and whites to work together, to understand each other, will not be found readymade; it must be created by the fact of contact.“ The Words of Martin Luther King, Jr.


„Segmentation was wrong when it was forced by white people, and I believe it is still wrong when it is requested by black people.“

„There comes a time when time itself is ready for a change.“ My Life, My Love, My Legacy

„It doesn't matter how strong your opinions are. If you don't use your power for positive change, you are, indeed, part of the problem.“
