The moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends towards justice.

I saw the Charter as an expression of my long held view that the subject of law must be the individual human being; the law must permit the individual to fulfill himself or herself to the utmost.

If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so.
