Pete Seeger

 "Participation - that's what's gonna save the human race."
 Signs placed on freeways around California.
Quotations by Pete Seeger.
 Education is what you get when you read the fine print. 
Experience is what you get if you don't.
 I still call myself a communist, because communism is no more what Russia made of it than Christianity is what the churches make of it. But if by some freak of history communism had caught up with this country, I would have been one of the first people thrown in jail.
 Technology will save us if it doesn't wipe us out first.
 In the largest sense, every work of art is protest. ... A lullaby is a propaganda song and any three-year-old knows it. ... A hymn is a controversial song — sing one in the wrong church: you'll find out...
 One blue sky above us

One ocean lapping all our shore
One earth so green and round
Who could ask for more?

Martin Luther King Jr.

 "We must use time creatively."
 Signs placed on freeways around California.
Quotations by Martin Luther King Jr.
 The time is always right to do what’s right.
 Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.
 The only weapon that we have in our hands this evening is the weapon of protest. That's all.

    Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
 In the end we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
