贝亚德·鲁斯汀(Bayard Rustin)名言

When an individual is protesting society's refusal to acknowledge his dignity as a human being, his very act of protest confers dignity on him.

当一个人抗议社会拒绝承认他作为一个人的尊严时,他的抗议行为本身就赋予了他尊严。

To be afraid is to behave as if the truth were not true.

害怕就是表现得好像真相不是真的。

The barometer for judging the character of people, in regard human rights, is now those who consider themselves gay, homosexual, lesbian. The judgment as to whether you can trust the future, the social advancement - depending on people - will be judged on where they come out on that question.

在人权方面,判断人们性格的晴雨表现在是那些认为自己是同性恋的人。判断你是否能相信未来,社会进步——取决于人们——将取决于他们在这个问题上的立场。

If we desire a society in which men are brothers, then we must act towards one another with brotherhood. If we can build such a society, then we would have achieved the ultimate goal of human freedom.

如果我们想要一个男人都是兄弟的社会,那么我们就必须以兄弟情谊对待彼此。如果我们能建立这样一个社会,那么我们就达到了人类自由的最终目标。

If we desire a society of peace, then we cannot achieve such a society through violence. If we desire a society without discrimination, then we must not discriminate against anyone in the process of building this society. If we desire a society that is democratic, then democracy must become a means as well as an end.

如果我们渴望和平社会,那么我们就不能通过暴力实现这样一个社会。如果我们渴望一个没有歧视的社会,那么在建设这个社会的过程中,我们就不能歧视任何人。如果我们希望一个民主的社会,那么民主就必须成为一种手段,也必须成为结束。

I believe in social dislocation and creative trouble.

我相信社会混乱和创作麻烦。

War is wrong. Conscription for war is inconsistent with freedom of conscience, which is not merely the right to believe but to act on the degree of truth that one receives, to follow a vocation which is God-inspired and God-directed.

战争是错误的。征兵参战与良心自由是不一致的,良心自由不仅是信仰的权利,而且是根据所接受的真理程度采取行动的权利,是遵循上帝激励和上帝指引的职业的权利。

We demand that segregation be ended in every school district in the year 1963! We demand that we have effective civil rights legislation - no compromise, no filibuster - and that include public accommodations, decent housing, integrated education, FEPC and the right to vote.

我们要求在1963年在每个学区结束种族隔离!我们要求我们有有效的民权立法——不妥协,不阻挠——包括公共设施、体面的住房、综合教育、FEPC和投票权。
