John Lewis
"I thought I was going to die a few times. On the Freedom Ride in the year 1961, when I was beaten at the Greyhound bus station in Montgomery, I thought I was going to die. On March 7th, 1965, when I was hit in the head with a night stick by a State Trooper at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge, I thought I was going to die. I thought I saw death, but nothing can make me question the philosophy of nonviolence."
Lewis quotes
"War does not end strife - it sows it. War does not end hatred - it feeds it. For those who argue war is a necessary evil, I say you are half right. War is evil. But it is not necessary. War cannot be a necessary evil, because non-violence is a necessary good. The two cannot co-exist."
Lewis
"I believe in nonviolence as a way of life, as a way of living."




Lewis John quotes
We may not have chosen the time, but the time has chosen us.
Lewis John
"Next time we march we may have to keep going when we get to Montgomery. We may have to on to Washington."
