“As long as one dissident is in prison, our freedom will not be true. As long as one child is hungry, our life will be filled with anguish and shame. What all these victims need above all is to know that they are not alone; that we are not forgetting them, that when their voices are stifled we shall lend them ours, that while their freedom depends on ours, the quality of our freedom depends on theirs.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson — ‘When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.’

Martin Luther King, Jr.: ‘Only in the darkness can you see the stars.’
