Human nature itself is evermore an advocate for liberty. There is also in human nature a resentment of injury, and indignation against wrong. A love of truth and a veneration of virtue. These amiable passions, are the "latent spark"… If the people are capable of understanding, seeing and feeling the differences between true and false, right and wrong, virtue and vice, to what better principle can the friends of mankind apply than to the sense of this difference?
more John Adams quotes
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
more Aesop quotes
In politics, love is a stranger, and when it intrudes upon it nothing is being achieved except hypocrisy. All the characteristics you stress in the Negro people: their beauty, their capacity for joy, their warmth, and their humanity, are well-known characteristics of all oppressed people. They grow out of suffering and they are the proudest possession of all pariahs. Unfortunately, they have never survived the hour of liberation by even five minutes. Hatred and love belong together, and they are both destructive; you can afford them only in private and, as a people, only so long as you are not free.
more Hannah Arendt quotes
Freedom, morality, and the human dignity of the individual consists precisely in this; that he does good not because he is forced to do so, but because he freely conceives it, wants it, and loves it.
more Mikhail A. Bakunin quotes
No man has ever been born a Negro hater, a Jew hater, or any other kind of hater. Nature refuses to be involved in such suicidal practices.
more Harry Bridges quotes
Individualism, the love of enterprise, and the pride in personal freedom, have been deemed by Americans not only as their choicest, but their peculiar and exclusive possessions.
more James Bryce quotes
Friendship is the only cure for hatred, the only guarantee of peace.
more Buddha quotes
If you wish to be loved, show more of your faults than your virtues.
more Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton quotes
The love of one's country is a splendid thing. But why should love stop at the border?
more Pablo Casals quotes
You make men love their government and their country by giving them the kind of government and the kind of country that inspire respect and love; a country that is free and unafraid, that lets the discontented talk in order to learn the causes of their discontent and end those causes, that refuses to impel men to spy on their neighbors, that protects its citizens vigorously from harmful acts while it leaves the remedies for objectionable ideas to counter-argument and time.
more Zecharian Chafee, Jr. quotes
I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.
more Sir Winston Churchill quotes
He is free who knows how to keep in his own hand the power to decide, at each step, the course of his life, and who lives in a society which does not block the exercise of that power.
more Salvador de Madariaga quotes
There can be no peace on earth as long as there is war in love.
more Dieter Duhm quotes
How wonderful the world might be if only we gave to each other all the love we claim to give to God, a thought which has been expressed time and time again, yet it still manages to resound with a poignance that is almost painful. Such a world can be ours, sisters and brothers. Let us work together to achieve it.
more John J. Dunphy quotes
I am convinced that the battle for humankind's future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers that correctly perceive their role as proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being... The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and new -- the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism, resplendent with the promise of a world in which the never-realized Christian ideal of 'love thy neighbor' will finally be achieved.
more John J. Dunphy quotes
It is always possible to bind together a considerable number of people in love, so long as there are other people left over to receive the manifestations of their aggressiveness.
more Sigmund Freud quotes
Nonviolence is not a garment to be put on and off at will. Its seat is in the heart, and it must be an inseparable part of our very being.
more Mahatma Mohandas K. Gandhi quotes
Once one assumes an attitude of intolerance, there is no knowing where it will take one. Intolerance, someone has said, is violence to the intellect and hatred is violence to the heart.
more Mahatma Mohandas K. Gandhi quotes
It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.
more Andre Gide quotes
Not until right is founded upon reverence will it be secure; not until duty is based upon love will it be complete; not until liberty is based on eternal principles will it be full, equal, lofty, and universal.
more Henry Giles quotes
The main thing is to have a soul that loves the truth and harbours it where he finds it. And another thing: truth requires constant repetition, because error is being preached about us all the time, and not only by isolated individuals but by the masses. In the newspapers and encyclopedias, in schools and universities, everywhere error rides high and basks in the consciousness of having the majority on its side.
more Johann Wolfgang von Goethe quotes
Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them to become what they are capable of being.
more Johann Wolfgang von Goethe quotes
Those who are lifting the world upward and onward are those who encourage more than criticize.
more Elizabeth Harrison quotes
The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves.
more William Hazlitt quotes
Love your country, but never trust its government.
more Robert A. Heinlein quotes
Perfect love holds the secret of the world's perfect liberty.
more Josiah Gilbert Holland quotes
Love is the only bow on Life's dark cloud. It is the morning and the evening star. It shines upon the babe, and sheds its radiance on the quiet tomb. It is the mother of art, inspirer of poet, patriot and philosopher. It is the air and light of every heart -- builder of every home, kindler of every fire on every hearth. It was the first to dream of immortality. It fills the world with melody -- for music is the voice of love. Love is the magician, the enchanter, that changes worthless things to Joy, and makes royal kings and queens of common clay. It is the perfume of that wondrous flower, the heart, and without that sacred passion, that divine swoon, we are less than beasts; but with it, earth is heaven, and we are gods.
more Robert G. Ingersoll quotes
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.
more Jesus of Nazareth quotes
The human heart refuses to believe in a universe without purpose.
more Immanuel Kant quotes
We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
I have a dream that one day ... the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
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.
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
In our struggle against racial segregation in Montgomery, Alabama, I came to see at a very early stage that a synthesis of Gandhi's method of nonviolence and the Christian ethic of love is the best weapon available to Negroes for this struggle for freedom and human dignity. It may well be that the Gandhian approach will bring about a solution to the race problem in America. His spirit is a continual reminder to oppressed people that it is possible to resist evil and yet not resort to violence.
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, 'Free at last! free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!'
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow cells. Some of you have come from areas where your quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive.
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
A man may have to die for our country: but no man must, in any exclusive sense, live for his country. He who surrenders himself without reservation to the temporal claims of a nation, or a party, or a class is rendering to Caesar that which, of all things, most emphatically belongs to God: himself.
more C. S. Lewis quotes
Him that I love, I wish to be free -- even from me.
more Anne Morrow Lindbergh quotes
To love truth for truth's sake is the principal part of human perfection in this world, and the seed-plot of all other virtues.
more John Locke quotes
I always knew that deep down in every human heart, there is mercy and generosity. No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than the opposite.
more Nelson Mandela quotes
Tolerance is a better guarantee of freedom than brotherly love; for a man may love his brother so much that he feels himself thereby appointed his brother’s keeper.
more Everett Dean Martin quotes
Forgiving releases you from the punishment of a self-made prison where you are both the inmate and the jailer.
more Howard Martin quotes
In literature as in love, we are astonished by what is chosen by others.
more Andre Maurois quotes
We create an environment where it is alright to hate, to steal, to cheat, and to lie if we dress it up with symbols of respectability, dignity and love.
more Whitney Moore, Jr. quotes
I think what motivates people is not great hate, but great love for other people.
more Huey P. Newton quotes
Let others praise ancient times; I am glad I was born in these.
more Ovid quotes
Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind.
more St. Peter quotes
Honesty demands that we boldly pursue ideas tested by time, defended by reason, validated by experience, and confirmed by revelation. We will only find truth when we place our confidence in it and not in ourselves. We will only learn when we love truth enough to measure all ideas with a measuring rod outside of those things being measured and are willing to discard those ideas we find to be "intolerable," inferior, and useless.
more Everett Piper quotes
An honest answer is the sign of true friendship.
more Proverb quotes
I swear by my life, and love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
