“Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” -John Philpot Curran, Thomas Jefferson, & Frederick Douglass

“Struggle is a never ending process. Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation.” -Coretta Scott King

“The only answer to the delay, double-dealing, tokenism and racism that we still confront is through mass nonviolent action and the ballot. At times these may seem too slow and inadequate, but they are the only real tools we have. Our course of action must lie neither in passively relying on persuasion nor in actively succumbing to violent rebellion, but in a higher synthesis that reconciles the truths of these two opposites while avoiding the inadequacies and ineffectiveness of both.” -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
