Just Because I’m 90 Doesn’t Mean I’m Ready To Die ― Or Disposable. “As long as I’m still creative … as long as I still enjoy life, nobody has the right to write me off.”
Your Honour, the courtroom is a crucible. In it we burn away irrelevancies until we are left with a pure product, the truth for all time.
The decision you reach here today will determine how the future will regard Us. It will reveal the kind of a people We are, what they are destined to be.
It will reach far beyond this courtroom and this event. It could significantly redefine the boundaries of personal liberty and freedom, expanding them for some, savagely curtailing them for others.
Are you prepared to condemn them and all who come after them to servitude and slavery?
Picard (The Measure of a Man)
I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the 99%’s great stumbling block in Our stride toward freedom is not the corporate politician or the CEO, but the educated moderate,
who is more devoted to “order” than to justice;
who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice;
who constantly says: “I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action”;
who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the 99% to wait for a “more convenient season.”
Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.
Martin Luther King Jr. (Letter From Birmingham Jail)
Do justice and righteousness, and deliver from the hand of the oppressor him who has been robbed. And do no wrong or violence to the resident alien, the fatherless, and the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place.
