I come from the state of Michigan. We were the first English-speaking government in the world to outlaw the death penalty, back in the 1840s.

As long as you don't make waves, ripples, life seems easy. But that's condemning yourself to impotence and death before you are dead.
Any business today that embraces the status quo as an operating principle is going to be on a death march.
I think that we should be eternally vigilant against attempts to check the expression of opinions that we loathe and believe to be fraught with death, unless they so imminently threaten immediate interference with the lawful and pressing purposes of the law that an immediate check is required to save the country.

You know, when I sit in meetings and things are very tense and people take things extremely seriously and they invest a lot of their ego, I sometimes think to myself, 'Come on, you know, there's life and there's death and there is love.' And all of that ego business is nonsense compared to that.
