“Nonviolence is the constant awareness of the dignity & humanity of oneself & others. It seeks truth & justice. It renounces violence both in method & in attitude. It is a courageous acceptance of active love & goodwill as the instrument with which to overcome evil & transform both oneself & others. It is the willingness to undergo suffering, rather than inflict it. It excludes retaliation & flight.” -Wally Nelson
