„We work against a social evil. If this evil isn't reacting it means we aren't a threat.“

—  Kailash Satyarthi Indian children's rights activist 1954

Times of India interview (2014)
Kontext: We work with broken families and broken people who've lost hope and are helpless. If people oppose my work, launch personal attacks, we know that we are on the right path. One colleague was shot, another was beaten to death. I've injuries all over my body. We work against a social evil. If this evil isn't reacting it means we aren't a threat.
