"In no sense do I advocate evading or defying the law ...
That would lead to anarchy. An individual who breaks a law
that his conscience tells him is unjust,
and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment
in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice,
is in reality expressing the highest respect for law."
