Words to Live By


Words to Live By
As of this minute, while America is assaulted by what will be the media's framing onslaught of Cindy Sheehan's arrest in front of the White House, we offer this short collection of words from famous originators of civil disobedience. Their words, like Cindy's actions yesterday, help us keep our spine...

"The Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, the constitutions of the several states and the organic laws of the Territories, all alike propose to protect the people in the exercise of their God-given rights. Not one of them pretends to bestow rights."
Susan B. Anthony

“We have no alternative but to protest . . . we come here tonight to be saved, to be saved from patience that makes us patience that makes us patient with anything less than freedom & justice . . . I want to say that in all of our actions we must stick together. Unity is the great need of the hour, and if we are united we can get many of the things that we not only desire, but which we justly deserve….If we are wrong, the Supreme Court of this nation is wrong. If we are wrong, the Constitution of the United States is wrong . . .If we are wrong, Jesus of Nazareth was merely a Utopian dreamer who never came down to earth. If we are wrong, justice is a lie.
