“And I won’t rest; I will face intimidation, and everything else, along with these other stalwart fighters for democracy and for citizenship. We don’t mind it, so long as justice comes out of it. And I’ve come to see now that as we struggle for our rights, maybe some of them will have to die. But somebody said,

if a man doesn’t have something that he’ll die for, he isn’t fit to live.”

Martin Luther King Jr., minister, activist, Quotes for Now, Montgomery bus boycott speech, 1955
