„You have much more power when you are working for the right thing than when you are working against the wrong thing.“

—  Peace Pilgrim American non-denominational spiritual teacher 1908 - 1981

Quelle: Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Work in Her Own Words (1982), Ch. 11 : Transforming Our Society
Kontext: You have much more power when you are working for the right thing than when you are working against the wrong thing. And, of course, if the right thing is established wrong things will fade away of their own accord. Grass-roots peace work is vitally important. All who work for peace belong to a special peace fellowship — whether we work together or apart.
