Martin Luther King Jr.
“But today our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change.

Together we must learn to live as brothers or together we will be forced to perish as fools.

The richer we have become materially, the poorer we have become morally and spiritually.”
