''[...]I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits.[...]''
-Martin Luther King's Acceptance Speech, on the occasion of the award of the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, December 10, 1964
...''We may turn our backs on suffering and pollute ourselves with consumerism, reality TV, violence, complacency, looks over substance, and so on. Instead let’s value love, community, compassion, mutual assistance, environment, and education. We need to see through the blinders that the status quo places on us.''
''Let’s start a revolution, not one that involves killing, fighting, or hate, but a revolution that begins within us, in our minds.''
When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.
