"We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and
discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into
physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights
of meeting physical force with soul force."
by:
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
(1929-1968), US civil rights leader

Speech delivered on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. on August 28, 1963.

Interestingly very few comments regarding one of the greatest Americans who for me ranks alongside Ghandi and Mandella in terms of attempting to bring about political change through peaceful protest and intent.
