4. "Numerous are the academic chairs, but rare are wise and noble teachers. Numerous and large are the lecture halls, but far from numerous the young people who genuinely thirst for truth and justice. Numerous are the wares that nature produces by the dozen, but her choice products are few.We all know that, so why complain? Was it not always thus and will it not always thus remain? Certainly, and one must take what nature gives as one finds it. But there is also such a thing as a spirit of the times, an attitude of mind characteristic of a particular generation, which is passed on from individual to individual and gives its distinctive mark to a society. Each of us has to his little bit toward transforming this spirit of the times."
Author: Albert Einstein

8. "If we promoted justice and charity among men, we should be playing directly into the Enemy's hands; but if we guide them to the opposite behaviour, this sooner or later produces (for He permits it to produce) a war or a revolution, and the undisguisable issue of cowardice or courage awakes thousands of men from moral stupor. This, indeed, is probably one of the Enemy's motives for creating a dangerous world—a world in which moral issues really come to the point. He sees as well as you do that courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point, which means, at the point of highest reality. A chastity or honesty, or mercy, which yields to danger will be chaste or honest or merciful only on conditions."
Author: C.S. Lewis
9. "En primer lugar, no dejéis que nadie gobierne vuestramente ni vuestro cuerpo y emplead especial atención para no poner límites a vuestrasideas, porque se puede ser un hombre libre a pesar de sufrir ataduras más fuertes quelas de un esclavo. Escuchad a los hombres, pero no os entreguéis a ellos en cuerpo yalma. Sed respetuosos con los que ostentan el poder, pero no los sigáis ciegamente.Juzgad con lógica y con razón, pero no hagáis comentarios.»No consideréis a nadie superior a vosotros, al margen del rango o de la posiciónque ocupen en la vida. Tratad a todos con justicia, porque si no intentaran vengarse devosotros. Cuidad vuestro dinero. Aferraos con fuerza a vuestras creencias, y los demásos escucharán —y añadió más despacio—: en cuanto a las cuestiones de amor... miúnico consejo es que seáis sinceros, pues la sinceridad es el arma más poderosa paraabrir el corazón o ganar el perdón."
Author: Christopher Paolini

11. "Thus it was up to God, to Him alonein His own ways - by one or both, I say - to give man back his whole life and perfection.But since a deed done is more prized the moreit manifests within itself the markof the loving heart and goodness of the doer,the Everlasting Love, whose seal is plainon all the wax of the world was pleased to movein all His ways to raise you up again.There was not, nor will be, from the first dayto the last night, an act so gloriousand so magnificent, on either way.For God, in giving Himself that man might beable to raise himself, gave even morethan if he had forgiven him in mercy.All other means would have been short, I say,of perfect justice, but that God's own Sonhumbled Himself to take on mortal clay.-Paradiso, Canto VII"

On our side are the people of the world and a power greater than money or weapons: the truth.Truth has a power of its own. Art has a power of its own. That age-old lesson – that everything we do matters – is the meaning of the people's struggle here in the United States and everywhere. A poem can inspire a movement. A pamphlet can spark a revolution. Civil disobedience can arouse people and provoke us to think, when we organize with one another, when we get involved, when we stand up and speak out together, we can create a power no government can suppress. We live in a beautiful country. But people who have no respect for human life, freedom, or justice have taken it over. It is now up to all of us to take it back."
Author: Howard Zinn

Author: Marva J. Dawn

Author: Richelle Mead
38. "We can move in that direction as a country, in greater polarization - black people amongst blacks, and white amongst whites, filled with hatred toward one another. Or we can make an effort, as Martin Luther King did, to understand and to comprehend, and replace that violence, that stain of bloodshed that has spread across our land, with an effort to understand, compassion and love.... What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or whether they be black."

39. "If abuses are destroyed, man must destroy them. If slaves are freed, man must free them. If new truths are discovered, man must discover them.

The grand victories of the future must be won by man, and by man alone."
Author: Robert G. Ingersoll

Author: Steve Erickson

Author: Terry Pratchett
