The legal battle against segregation is won, but the community battle goes on.
It's a matter of taking the side of the weak against the strong, something the best people have always done.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
When freedom does not have a purpose, when it does not wish to know anything about the rule of law engraved in the hearts of men and women, when it does not listen to the voice of conscience, it turns against humanity and society.
Pope John Paul II
He is a man of courage who does not run away, but remains at his post and fights against the enemy.
