Martin Luther King
A riot is the language of the unheard.
Vice President Hubert Humphrey
if I were in those conditions… I have enough spark left in me to lead a mighty good revolt under those conditions.
In the great struggle to advance civil and human rights, even a jail sentence is no longer a dishonor but a proud achievement. … Perhaps we are destined to see in this law-loving land people running for office not on their stainless records but on their prison records.
Supreme Court Justice Willim O. Douglas
We must realize that today’s Establishment is the new George III. Whether it will continue to adhere to his tactics, we do not know. If it does, the redress, honored in tradition, is also revolution!
Senator Robert Kennedy
A revolution is coming – a revolution which will be peaceful if we are wise enough; compassionate if we care enough; successful if we are fortunate enough – but a revolution which is coming whether we will it or not. We can affect its character; we cannot alter its inevitability.
