If we desire a society of peace, then we cannot achieve such a society through violence. If we desire a society without discrimination, then we must not discriminate against anyone in the process of building this society. If we desire a society that is democratic, then democracy must become a means as well as an end. ~Bayard Rustin

Unreason and anti-intellectualism abominate thought. Thinking implies disagreement; and disagreement implies nonconformity; and nonconformity implies heresy; and heresy implies disloyalty — so, obviously, thinking must be stopped. But shouting is not a substitute for thinking and reason is not the subversion but the salvation of freedom. ~Adlai Stevenson, A Call to Greatness (1954), p. 99

“Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel in order to be tough. The vigorous expression of our American community spirit is truly important. The ancient injunction to love thy neighbor as thyself is still the force that animates our  faith—a faith that we are determined shall live and conquer in a world poisoned by hatred and ravaged by war.” ~President Franklin D Roosevelt, In a radio address for the Mobilization for Human Needs on October 13, 1940

The opposite of anger is not calmness, its empathy. ~Mehmet Oz

One doesn’t have to operate with great malice to do great harm. The absence of empathy and understanding are sufficient. ~Charles M. Blow

We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it. ~Abraham Lincoln

Our community belongs to us and whether it is mean or majestic, whether arrayed in glory or covered in shame, we cannot but share its character and destiny. ~Frederick Douglass

The greatest good we can do our country is to heal its party divisions and make them one people. ~Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Dickinson, July 23, 1801

"Now, more than ever, the illusions of division threaten our very existence. We all know the truth: more connects us than separates us. But in times of crisis the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe.” -King T'Challa, Black Panther

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it. ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is. ~Winston Churchill

"In a republic, to be successful we must learn to combine intensity of conviction with a broad tolerance of difference of conviction. Wide differences of opinion in matters of religious, political, and social belief must exist if conscience and intellect alike are not to be stunted, if there is to be room for healthy growth. Bitter internecine hatreds, based on such differences, are signs, not of earnestness of belief, but of that fanaticism which, whether religious or anti-religious, democratic or anti-democratic, is itself but a manifestation of the gloomy bigotry which has been the chief factor in the downfall of so many, many nations."
~Teddy Roosevelt, “Citizenship in a Republic” speech, April 23, 1910
