True Peace

True peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice.

-- Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929 - 1968), Baptist minister, civil rights activist, 1964 Nobel Peace laureate, in a 1955 response to an accusation that he was "disturbing the peace" by his activism during the Montgomery Bus Boycott, as quoted in Let the Trumpet Sound : A Life of Martin Luther King, Jr (1982) by Stephen B. Oates
