Racism is still with us. But it is up to us to prepare our children for what they have to meet, and, hopefully, we shall overcome.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values.
No struggle can ever succeed without women participating side by side with men.
The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal.
There should be no discrimination against languages people speak, skin color, or religion.
If we cannot now end our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity.
If you want to see the true measure of a man, watch how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.
The earth is the mother of all people, and all people should have equal rights upon it.
True equality means holding everyone accountable in the same way, regardless of race, gender, faith, ethnicity - or political ideology.
Until we get equality in education, we won't have an equal society.
Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you're a man, you take it.
The equal right of all citizens to health, education, work, food, security, culture, science, and well-being - that is, the same rights we proclaimed when we began our struggle, in addition to those which emerge from our dreams of justice and equality for all inhabitants of our world - is what I wish for all.
Let us remember we are all part of one American family. We are united in common values, and that includes belief in equality under the law, basic respect for public order, and the right of peaceful protest.
The history of the past is but one long struggle upward to equality.
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood.
I like the religion that teaches liberty, equality and fraternity.
Gender equality is more than a goal in itself. It is a precondition for meeting the challenge of reducing poverty, promoting sustainable development and building good governance.
Today, Negroes play on every big league club and in every minor league. With millions of other Negroes in other walks of life, we are willing to stand up and be counted for what we believe in. In baseball or out, we are no longer willing to wait until Judgment Day for equality - we want it here on earth as well as in Heaven.
The right to a quality education is, I believe, the perfect path to bridge the gap between different cultures and to reconcile various civilizations. Without such a right, the values of liberty, justice and equality will have no meaning. Ignorance is by far the biggest danger and threat to humankind.
