"I refuse to accept the idea that the 'isness' of man's present nature makes him morally incapable of reaching up for the eternal 'oughtness' that forever confronts him. I refuse to accept the idea that man is mere flotsom and jetsom in the river of life, unable to influence the unfolding events which surround him. I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality."
Martin Luther King Jr., Acceptance Speech for Nobel Peace Prize
"During times of disaster sorrow brings people together in a spirit of friendship,
and influences man to recognize the blessings of becoming his brother's keeper."

brotherhood will not come to pass."
Fyodor Dostoyevsky Build Your Bridges |
"Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet.
We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's future.
And we are all mortal."

no brotherhood there can in the end be no peace."
