“I believe there is something in human history, I call it the spirit of history. It's like a spring, a stream, that continues to move and individuals and forces come along that become symbols of what is good and what is right and what is fair.”―Representative John Lewis

“I was inspired by MLK Jr, and Rosa Parks and others to get in the way. To get in trouble―good trouble. Necessary trouble. And we all must find a way to have the courage to get in trouble. To do our part. Every generation must find a way to leave the planet, leave this little spaceship . . . Earth, this little piece of real estate, a little better than we found it. A little cleaner, a little greener, and a little more peaceful. I think that's our calling. We have a mission, a mandate, and a moral obligation to do just that.”―Representative John Lewis

“You, too, can allow yourself to be used by the spirit of history. Just find a way to get in the way.”―Representative John Lewis

“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.”―Pablo Picasso

“You can cut all of the flowers, but you cannot keep the spring from coming.”―Pablo Neruda

“Don't be sad that someone has died, be happy that they lived.” ((No credible attribution at this time))
