Retro Quote – Robert F. Kennedy

“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”

Retro Quote – John Lewis

“Yes, I was beaten, left bloody and unconscious.  But I never became bitter or hostile, never gave up.  I believe that somehow and some way if it becomes necessary to use our bodies to help redeem the soul of the nation, then we must do it.”

John Lewis
