It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious Things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them." -Mark Twain (1835-1910), U.S. author. Following the Equator, ch. 20, "Pudd’nhead Wilson’s New Calendar" (1897)
The curse of poverty has no justification in our age. It is socially as cruel and blind as the practice of cannibalism at the dawn of civilization, when men ate each other because they had not yet learned to take food from the soil or to consume the abundant animal life around them. The time has come for us to civilize ourselves by the total, direct and immediate abolition of poverty.” Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King JR
