Non-Violence: What Do We Mean?

In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.
Martin Luther King Jr.

Excessive suffering drives the soul to great resolve. Cowards turn to the barrel of a pistol and disappear with the smoke of gunpowder. Those with energy reach for the sword, the plow or the pen and, though they may be broken inside, like a rosary with a snapped string, they build. Man has to be downtrodden like a beast before the hero in him appears.

Jose Marti
