True Peace

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

-- Martin Luther King, Jr. (15 January 1929 - 4 April 1968), African-American civil rights leader, 1955 response to an accusation that he was "disturbing the peace" by his activism during the Montgomery Bus Boycott in Montgomery, Alabama, as quoted in Let the Trumpet Sound : A Life of Martin Luther King, Jr (1982) by  Stephen B. Oates
