Social Justice quotes by Lisa Kemmerer
#1. You ultimately decide, every day, whether or not your life will speak on behalf of the oppressed, or remain an inaudible but decisive tool for the status quo. #Quote by Lisa Kemmerer
Social Justice quotes by Ernest L. Boyer
#2. A poor surgeon hurts one person at a time. A poor teacher hurts 130. #Quote by Ernest L. Boyer
Social Justice quotes by Janet Robertson
#3. Engaging with children in troublesome thinking is problematic, but important. Ignoring the hard stuff and only engaging in the fluff and fun from curriculum choices is to keep underground issues of social justice and to further silence and compound the inequity #Quote by Janet Robertson
Social Justice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#4. If you and Marcus were white, maybe the country is just as pissed as you are. But knowing that it's wrong doesn't make it any less true. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Social Justice quotes by Darrin Patrick
#5. While our heart for social justice grows out from the gospel, social justice by itself will not communicate the gospel. We need gospel proclamation, for as much as people may see our good deeds, they cannot hear the good news unless we tell them. Social justice, though valuable as an expression of Christian love, should, especially as a churchwide endeavor, serve the goal of gospel proclamation. #Quote by Darrin Patrick
Social Justice quotes by Caroline Knapp
#6. If only we lived in a culture in which internal measures of satisfaction and success - a capacity for joy and caring, an ability to laugh, a sense of connection to others, a belief in social justice - were as highly valued as external measures. If only we lived in a culture that made ambition compatible with motherhood and family life, that presented models of women who were integrated and whole: strong, sexual, ambitious, cued into their own varied appetites and demands, and equipped with the freedom and resources to explore all of them. If only women felt less isolated in their frustration and fatigue, less torn between competing hungers, less compelled to keep nine balls in the air at once, and less prone to blame themselves when those balls come crashing to the floor. If only we exercised our own power, which is considerable but woefully underused; if only we defined desire on our own terms. And - painfully, truly - if only we didn't care so much about how we looked, how much we weighed, what we wore. #Quote by Caroline Knapp
Social Justice quotes by Rick Perlstein
#7. Economic issues are a subset of social justice. Social justice is unimaginable without economic justice. Isn't that obvious? #Quote by Rick Perlstein
Social Justice quotes by Dee Dee Myers
#8. Research confirms that both Republican and Democratic women are more likely than their male counterparts to initiate and fight for bills that champion social justice, protect the environment, advocate for families, and promote nonviolent conflict resolution. #Quote by Dee Dee Myers
Social Justice quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#9. The idea of social justice is that the state should treat different people unequally in order to make them equal #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Social Justice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#10. Every time our people take two steps forward, it seems that we take a step and a half backward. Things are changing for the better, but when you wear your difference on your face, when the color of your skin defines who you are to others, change doesn't come easy… #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Social Justice quotes by Claudio Hummes
#11. We know that social exclusion is closely tied to the new economic world order, globalized, with free and open markets, which isn't bringing prosperity or social justice to all. #Quote by Claudio Hummes
Social Justice quotes by Bryan Stevenson
#12. The death penalty is not about whether people deserve to die for the crimes they commit. The real question of capital punishment in this country is, Do we deserve to kill? #Quote by Bryan Stevenson
Social Justice quotes by John Scalzi
#13. Here's a hot tip: If you think calling someone a social justice warrior is an insult, you might be a horrible person. #Quote by John Scalzi
Social Justice quotes by Alan Lomax
#14. The dimension of cultural equity needs to be added to the humane continuum of liberty, freedom of speech and religion, and social justice. #Quote by Alan Lomax
Social Justice quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#15. Democracy cannot be static. Whatever is static is dead. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Social Justice quotes by Trevor Noah
#16. In American, the history of racism is taught like this: 'There was slavery and then there was Jim Crow and then there was Martin Luther King Jr. and now it's done. #Quote by Trevor Noah
Social Justice quotes by Thomas Sowell
#17. Lofty talk about 'social justice' or 'fairness' boils down to greatly expanded powers for politicians, since those pretty words have no concrete definition. They are a blank check for creating disparities in power that dwarf disparities in income - and are far more dangerous. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Social Justice quotes by Bob Kerrey
#18. When you're fighting for economic and social justice, you're always fighting for the minority. #Quote by Bob Kerrey
Social Justice quotes by Pope Francis
#19. Without a solution to the problems of the poor, we will not solve the problems of the world. We need projects, mechanisms and processes to implement better distribution of resources, from the creation of new jobs to the integral promotion of those who are excluded'. #Quote by Pope Francis
Social Justice quotes by William P. Leahy
#20. One of the biggest issues that we face is that we have people who have their own particular concerns, whether it's on abortion, birth control, divorce and remarriage, civil rights or social justice. #Quote by William P. Leahy
Social Justice quotes by Eka Kurniawan
#21. Communism was born from a beautiful dream, the likes of which there will never be again on the face of this earth: that there would no longer be lazy men who eat their fill while others work hard and starve. #Quote by Eka Kurniawan
Social Justice quotes by Tyler Oakley
#22. The Internet is accelerating the speed of acceptance and social justice. #Quote by Tyler Oakley
Social Justice quotes by Stephen Lovegrove
#23. Tolerance is the essential starting point for compassion. That's why it is so emphasized in our society right now. In a world full of discrimination, prejudice, and marginalization, people need to be taught to tolerate people who are different. Tolerance, at the political, social, and cultural level, will prevent us from choosing speech or actions that harms other people groups, which is a definite win. #Quote by Stephen Lovegrove
Social Justice quotes by Voltaire
#24. I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: Oh Lord, make my enemies ridiculous. And God granted it."

(Letter to Étienne Noël Damilaville, May 16, 1767) #Quote by Voltaire
Social Justice quotes by Robert Sirico
#25. [There is] a strange split in thinking common to those on the religious left, who are quick to denounce the profit motive and commercialism. Yet, they seem to think that the key to happiness is giving people more stuff - by enlisting the coercive power of government. This perverse way of thinking holds that 'social justice' demands that we take money from those who have earned it and give it to those who have less of it. That's not social justice; that's materialism. #Quote by Robert Sirico
Social Justice quotes by Jane Addams
#26. The essence of immorality is the tendency to make an exception of myself. #Quote by Jane Addams
Social Justice quotes by Ralph Nader
#27. When do corporations begin to lose their credibility? They fought Social Security, Medicare, auto safety. They fought every social justice movement in this country. #Quote by Ralph Nader
Social Justice quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#28. I have come to feel strongly that the greatest service I can still render to my fellow men would be that I could make the speakers and writers among them thoroughly ashamed ever again to employ the term social justice. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Social Justice quotes by Michio Kaku
#29. Beyond work and love, I would add two other ingredients that give meaning to life. First, to fulfill whatever talents we are born with. However blessed we are by fate with different abilities and strengths, we should try to develop them to the fullest, rather than allow them to atrophy and decay. We all know individuals who did not fulfill the promise they showed in childhood. Many of them became haunted by the image of what they might have become. Instead of blaming fate, I think we should accept ourselves as we are and try to fulfill whatever dreams are within our capability.
Second, we should try to leave the world a better place than when we entered it. As individuals, we can make a difference, whether it is to probe the secrets of Nature, to clean up the environment and work for peace and social justice, or to nurture the inquisitive, vibrant spirit of the young by being a mentor and a guide. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Social Justice quotes by Johann Lamont
#30. Scotland is my country, the nation that shaped me, that taught me my values. A nation whose achievements inspired and inspire me, a community whose failings drive me - drive my overwhelming desire to fight for social justice and equality. #Quote by Johann Lamont
Social Justice quotes by D. Denise Dianaty
#31. Hands and hearts and minds and voices committed to working for tolerance, peace and social justice everywhere, always. #Quote by D. Denise Dianaty
Social Justice quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#32. I told them we're tired of the culture wars, tired of Christianity getting entangled with party politics and power. Millennials want to be known by what we're for, I said, not just what we're against. We don't want to choose between science and religion or between our intellectual integrity and our faith. Instead, we long for our churches to be safe places to doubt, to ask questions, and to tell the truth, even when it's uncomfortable. We want to talk about the tough stuff - biblical interpretation, religious pluralism, sexuality, racial reconciliation, and social justice - but without predetermined conclusions or simplistic answers. We want to bring our whole selves through the church doors, without leaving our hearts and minds behind, without wearing a mask. #Quote by Rachel Held Evans
Social Justice quotes by Ha-Joon Chang
#33. Once you realize that trickle-down economics does not work, you will see the excessive tax cuts for the rich as what they are
a simple upward redistribution of income, rather than a way to make all of us richer, as we were told. #Quote by Ha-Joon Chang
Social Justice quotes by Muhammad Ali Jinnah
#34. We should have a State in which we could live and breathe as free men and which we could develop according to our own lights and culture and where principles of Islamic social justice could find free play. #Quote by Muhammad Ali Jinnah
Social Justice quotes by Sharan Burrow
#35. Our children will work in energy tomorrow - they just won't work in fossil fuels, in the meantime, for social justice, economic justice and stability, we need ... negotiated, planned outcomes that people can touch at both the national and industry and enterprise level. #Quote by Sharan Burrow
Social Justice quotes by H.L. Mencken
#36. One of the things that makes a Negro unpleasant to white folk is the fact that he suffers from their injustice. He is thus a standing rebuke to them. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Social Justice quotes by Philip Slee
#37. ...in order to achieve improved outcomes for families at risk, a paradigm shift is required so that unequal outcomes for families and children are seen as social injustices, rather than as products of individual dysfunction or deficit #Quote by Philip Slee
Social Justice quotes by James Wolfensohn
#38. The future is in our hands. We are not hapless bystanders. We can influence whether we have a planet of peace, social justice, equity, and growth or a planet of unbridgeable differences between peoples, wasted resources, corruption, and terror. #Quote by James Wolfensohn
Social Justice quotes by Brennan Manning
#39. For the Christian one dislocating, self-impoverishing hour spent with a child living in a broken-down dump is worth more than all the burial mounds of rhetoric, all the enfeebled good intentions, all the mumbling and fumbling and tardiness of those Christians who are so busy cultivating their own holiness that they cannot hear the anguished cry of the child in the slum. #Quote by Brennan Manning
Social Justice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#40. A racist cop pulls over a black driver for little reason other than the fact that the driver is black and a recent robbery was committed by a couple of young black guys in a white community. The cop quickly realizes the driver is not one of the robbery suspects. He sees a man with a wife and two small children. They are not a couple of young punks. Still,he persists. Why?
"He asks to see the driver's license and registration. While locating the appropriate documents, the black driver respectfully volunteers that he is legally carrying a handgun. The cop panics - is it the image of a black man with a gun? He barks out conflicting orders and then shoots the man
to death, in front of his family. Why? "Is it because the cop is an insensitive racist? Maybe he wasn't trained or taught any better? Perhaps he lived a completely different life in a completely different world than that of the black man. In this cop's world, were all black men potential criminals, people to be watched, people to be feared? #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Social Justice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#41. A black woman challenging the system and taking on a white man - especially a white cop - is not going to have an easy time. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Social Justice quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#42. Let my name stand among those who are willing to bear ridicule and reproach for the truth's sake, and so earn some right to rejoice when the victory is won. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Social Justice quotes by W.B.Yeats
#43. An intellectual hatred is the worst. #Quote by W.B.Yeats
Social Justice quotes by Hillary Clinton
#44. And I want to thank Bernie Sanders. Bernie, your campaign inspired millions of Americans, particularly the young people who threw their hearts and souls into our primary. You've put economic and social justice issues front and center, where they belong. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Social Justice quotes by Geraldine Brooks
#45. My mother's family were full-on Irish Catholics - faith in an elaborate old fashioned, highly conservative and madly baroque style. I sort of fell out of the tribe over women's rights and social justice issues when I was just 13 years old. #Quote by Geraldine Brooks
Social Justice quotes by Neal Brennan
#46. If you're into social justice it's hard not to be on black people's side. #Quote by Neal Brennan
Social Justice quotes by Amit Ahlawat
#47. There are times when relationships need to be prioritised over what is right. And there are times when the right needs to be prioritised over relationships. #Quote by Amit Ahlawat
Social Justice quotes by Jamie Arpin-Ricci
#48. It is entirely possible to work for justice without thirsting for blood. #Quote by Jamie Arpin-Ricci
Social Justice quotes by Rivera Sun
#49. It was not the blatant evil that broke the soul. No, in the face of utter darkness, the human spirit often rose to soaring heights. It was the shades of gray, the nuances and subtleties that wore people down. It was dealing with sellouts and side deals, small injustices and petty grievances that turned heroes into stoop-shouldered, weary old men. That was how they crumbled, idealists like this young man. They tripped on the garbage heap of miserly greed and fearful half-measures. #Quote by Rivera Sun
Social Justice quotes by Susan Sontag
#50. Rules of taste enforce structures of power. #Quote by Susan Sontag
Social Justice quotes by Prem
#51. Difference between author & reader are only defined by their Intent. #Quote by Prem
Social Justice quotes by Kermit Roosevelt III
#52. We are at war, and in time of war there is only one rule. Form your battalion and fight. #Quote by Kermit Roosevelt III
Social Justice quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#53. The chief object of education is not to learn things but to unlearn things. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Social Justice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#54. The cop's suspended with pay. With pay, Mama! My husband is dead, and his killer gets a paid vacation? What kind of justice is that? #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Social Justice quotes by Glenn Beck
#55. I beg you, look for the words 'social justice' or 'economic justice' on your church Web site. If you find it, run as fast as you can. Social justice and economic justice, they are code words. #Quote by Glenn Beck
Social Justice quotes by Frederick Douglass
#56. They who study mankind with a whip in their hands will always go wrong. #Quote by Frederick Douglass
Social Justice quotes by Jodi Picoult
#57. When it comes to social justice, the role of the white ally is not to be a savior or a fixer. Instead, the role of the ally is to find other white people and talk to make them see that many of the benefits they've enjoyed in life are direct results of the fact that someone else did not have the same benefits. I #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Social Justice quotes by Juan Montalvo
#58. There is nothing harder than the softness of indifference. #Quote by Juan Montalvo
Social Justice quotes by Sil Lai Abrams
#59. In order to break free from the chains that bind, one must take whatever action they can to disconnect internally from the larger systems of oppression, of which the family unit is merely a microcosm. #Quote by Sil Lai Abrams
Social Justice quotes by Arundhati Roy
#60. Colorful demonstrations and weekend marches are vital but alone are not powerful enough to stop wars. Wars will be stopped only when soldiers refuse to fight, when workers refuse to load weapons onto ships and aircraft, when people boycott the economic outposts of Empire that are strung across the globe. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Social Justice quotes by DeRay Mckesson
#61. The theory of policing is quite far from the reality of policing. For us, at least, that is. #Quote by DeRay Mckesson
Social Justice quotes by Muhammad Ali
#62. I try to learn as much as I can because I know nothing compared to what I need to know. #Quote by Muhammad Ali
Social Justice quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#63. Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Social Justice quotes by Richard Rodriguez
#64. Mexico was most powerfully my father's smile and not, as you might otherwise imagine, not language, not pigment. #Quote by Richard Rodriguez
Social Justice quotes by Ousmane Sembene
#65. It isn't those who are taken by force, put in chains, and sold as slaves who are the real slaves; it is those who will accept it, morally and physically. #Quote by Ousmane Sembene
Social Justice quotes by L.R. Knost
#66. I know the concern over the events in our nation doesn't end at our borders. Because there are no borders, really, if you think about it. Everything we do on this planet has repercussions that reverberate around the world. Because we're connected. We belong to each other. And we need each other. We will get through this. Together. And we'll learn and grow and overcome. Together. I believe the good things in this world outnumber the sad. And I believe the good people outnumber the bad. We are the lights sparkling in the darkness, and our hope and love are going to set the world on fire. I believe in us. #Quote by L.R. Knost
Social Justice quotes by Monica O Montgomery
#67. Museum education has the power and the responsibility to do the challenging inner work of tackling tough topics and turning them into teachable moments. #Quote by Monica O Montgomery
Social Justice quotes by John Oliver Killens
#68. What a tiresome place America would be if freedom meant we all had to think alike or be the same color or wear the same gray flannel suit! That road leads to the conformity of the graveyard! #Quote by John Oliver Killens
Social Justice quotes by Leela Fernandes
#69. Reclaiming the sacred... is not simply a new linguistic or symbolic strategy for feminism. It goes to the heart of feminist struggles for social justice and can provide a critical foundation for social transformation. At one level, feminism becomes a means for the decolonization of the divine. At another level, the provision of spiritual strength to individuals deeply committed to social justice is more necessary than ever in a world racked by immense hatreds that feed on each other in endless cycles of retribution, always in the name of 'justice.' Finally, a spiritualization of social movements can provide a means with which to break from these cycles of retribution which perpetrate multiple and linked forms of oppression so that social movements continually find themselves appropriated by or circumscribed within the very structures they have tried wholeheartedly to resist. #Quote by Leela Fernandes
Social Justice quotes by Andrea Gibson
#70. I decided I was going to read only social justice poetry through my entire set. But when I was making my set list it hit me that the simple existence of the word 'she' in my love poem made it a political poem. Isn't that criminal? Isn't it criminal that love is a political thing? That the heart is a political thing? #Quote by Andrea Gibson
Social Justice quotes by Rivera Sun
#71. Respecting the humanity of our opposition - who are our fellow citizens whether we approve of their actions or not - requires a depth of fearlessness far beyond the tactics of dehumanization and attacking. #Quote by Rivera Sun
Social Justice quotes by Paul Farmer
#72. But if you're asking my opinion, I would argue that a social justice approach should be central to medicine and utilized to be central to public health. This could be very simple: the well should take care of the sick. #Quote by Paul Farmer
Social Justice quotes by George Orwell
#73. It is brought home to you ... that it is only because miners sweat their guts out that superior persons can remain superior. #Quote by George Orwell
Social Justice quotes by Jennifer Armintrout
#74. If we truly seek diversity in fiction, we have to let the needs of others come before our need to define ourselves as social justice allies. #Quote by Jennifer Armintrout
Social Justice quotes by Angela Davis
#75. Racism cannot be separated from capitalism. #Quote by Angela Davis
Social Justice quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#76. A non-violent revolution is not a program of seizure of power. It is a program of transformation of relationships, ending in a peaceful transfer of power. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Social Justice quotes by Lin-Manuel Miranda
#77. You cannot let all the world's tragedies into your heart. You'll drown. But the ones you do let in should count. Let them manifest action. #Quote by Lin-Manuel Miranda
Social Justice quotes by Nawal El Saadawi
#78. The slogan of the revolution was dignity, social justice, and freedom. You cannot have dignity or social justice or freedom without women. #Quote by Nawal El Saadawi
Social Justice quotes by Bell Hooks
#79. The greatest movement for social justice our country has ever known is the civil rights movement and it was totally rooted in a love ethic. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Social Justice quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#80. When it's better for everyone, it's better for everyone. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Social Justice quotes by Harold Bloom
#81. The defense of the Western Canon is in no way a defense of the West or a nationalist enterprise ... The greatest enemies of aesthetic and cognitive standards are purported defenders who blather to us about moral and political values in literature. We do not live by the ethics of the Iliad, or by the politics of Plato. Those who teach interpretation have more in common with the Sophists than with Socrates. What can we expect Shakespeare to do for our semiruined society, since the function of Shakespearean drama has so little to do with civic virtue or social justice? #Quote by Harold Bloom
Social Justice quotes by Chuck Todd
#82. The problem is sitting in the birthplace of Islam, in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, where this interpretation of Islam has gone out into the world over the last four decades, creating militancy groups from Indonesia, to now, San Bernardino, California, vicious attack. We have to take back the faith. And we have to take it back with the principles of peace, social justice, and human rights, women's rights, and secularize governance. #Quote by Chuck Todd
Social Justice quotes by Harriet A. Washington
#83. Physicians, patients, and ethicists must also understand that acknowledging abuse and encouraging African Americans to participate in research are compatible goals. History and today's deplorable African American health profile tell us clearly that black Americans need both more research and more vigilance. #Quote by Harriet A. Washington
Social Justice quotes by Dar Williams
#84. But social justice and the environment are very tied together in my head. #Quote by Dar Williams
Social Justice quotes by Helen Keller
#85. Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each others welfare, social justice can never be attained. #Quote by Helen Keller
Social Justice quotes by Zhang Zai
#86. In everything that moves through the universe, I see my own body, and in everything that governs the universe, my own soul. All men are my brethren, and all things my companions. #Quote by Zhang Zai
Social Justice quotes by H.G.Wells
#87. A federation of all humanity, together with a sufficient measure of social justice, to ensure health, education, and a rough equality of opportunity to most of the children born into the world, would mean such a release and increase of human energy as to open a new phase in human history. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Social Justice quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#88. Tradition is a guide and not a jailer. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Social Justice quotes by Ha-Joon Chang
#89. The widely accepted assertion that, only if you let markets be will everyone be paid correctly and thus fairly, according to his worth, is a myth. Only when we part with this myth and grasp the political nature of the market and the collective nature of individual productivity will we be able to build a more just society in which historical legacies and collective actions, and not just individual talents and efforts, are properly taken into account in deciding how to reward people. #Quote by Ha-Joon Chang
Social Justice quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
#90. Among those who dislike oppression are many who like to oppress. #Quote by Napoleon Bonaparte
Social Justice quotes by Simon Tam
#91. Apathy is not compatible with love #Quote by Simon Tam
Social Justice quotes by Roger Scruton
#92. Left-wing politics has discarded the revolutionary paradigm advanced by the New Left, in favour of bureaucratic routines and the institutionalization of the welfare culture. The two goals of liberation and social justice remain in place: but they are promoted by legislation, committees and government commissions empowered to root out the sources of discrimination. Liberation and social justice have been bureaucratized. #Quote by Roger Scruton
Social Justice quotes by Will Durant
#93. We teach more by what we are than by what we teach. #Quote by Will Durant
Social Justice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#94. Mrs. Hayes has instructed me to file a police misconduct and civil rights wrongful death lawsuit in Wayne County Circuit Court against the officer who murdered her husband and against the city and police department that hired and trained this officer and turned him loose on an unsuspecting public."
"May I quote you on that?" Jillian is eager for a scoop.
"Absolutely. Police brutality is a heinous act. Police officers work in service to the public. The public should be able to rely on that service and the preservation of their safety. The public should expect that police officer functions and services are even-handed, fair, and appropriate, applied the same way for all citizens, regardless of race, creed, color, or national origin. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Social Justice quotes by Mark Lilla
#95. When Marxian socialism came to the United States after the 1848 revolutions, it brought along in its baggage this European suspicion of liberal-democratic procedures. Eventually that was dispelled and socialist organizations began participating in electoral politics. But they continued to think of themselves more as the vanguard of a movement than as voices in a democratic chorus. And their preferred political tactics remained the mass demonstration and the strike -- rather than, say, winning elections for county commissioner. The significance of these groups in American politics peaked during the Great Depression and then faded. But their movement ideal retained its grip on the left, and in the 1960s it captured the imagination of liberals as well. There had been emancipatory movements before, against slavery, for women's rights, for workers' protection. They did not question the legitimacy of the American system; they just wanted it to live up to its principles and respect its procedures. And they worked with parties and through institutions to achieve their ends. But as the 1970s flowed into the 1980s, movement politics began to be seen by many liberals as an alternative rather than a supplement to institutional politics, and by some as being more legitimate. That's when what we now call the social justice warrior was born, a social type with quixotic features whose self-image depends on being unstained by compromise and above trafficking in mere interests. #Quote by Mark Lilla
Social Justice quotes by Toni Morrison
#96. We don't need any more writers as solitary heroes. We need a heroic writer's movement: assertive, militant, pugnacious. #Quote by Toni Morrison
Social Justice quotes by Richard Llewellyn
#97. My business is anything that comes between men and the Spirit of God. #Quote by Richard Llewellyn
Social Justice quotes by Barack Obama
#98. Today, we are closer to fulfilling America's promise of economic and social justice because we stand on the shoulders of giants like Dr. King, yet our future progress will depend on how we prepare our next generation of leaders. We must fortify their ladders of opportunity by correcting social injustice, breaking the cycle of poverty in struggling communities, and reinvesting in our schools. Education can unlock a child's potential and remains our strongest weapon against injustice and inequality. #Quote by Barack Obama
Social Justice quotes by Francis George
#99. Love isn't blind. Love is reasonable. God is pure love, but He is also pure reason. If you separate reason from faith you'll end in violence. Either way, if you have a purely rationalistic scheme that is atheistic, for instance Communism was for social justice. Fascism was for the nation-state, which isn't automatically a bad thing. #Quote by Francis George
Social Justice quotes by Justin Wetch
#100. The scales of justice are tilted by money
It's rather ironic but far from funny
The powerful get cuff links, not handcuffs
While prison bars make others' hands rough. #Quote by Justin Wetch
Social Justice quotes by Howard R. Bowen
#101. CSR can help business reach the goals of social justice and economic prosperity by creating welfare for a broad range of social groups, beyond the corporations and their shareholders. #Quote by Howard R. Bowen
Social Justice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#102. Understanding, celebrating, and teaching our First Amendment rights are our true tickets to understanding the fundamental freedoms that make this country great. A great leader realizes that he or she represents both the flag wavers and the flag burners. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Social Justice quotes by George Eliot
#103. I have to determine for myself, and not for other men. I don't blame them, or think I am better than they; their circumstances are different. I would never choose to withdraw myself from the labour and common burden of the world; but I do choose to withdraw myself from the push and the scramble for money and position. Any man is at liberty to call me a fool, and say that mankind are benefited by the push and the scramble in the long-run. But I care for the people who live now and will not be living when the long-run comes. As it is, I prefer going shares with the unlucky. #Quote by George Eliot
Social Justice quotes by Zapatistas
#104. Dignity is a bridge.

It needs two sides that, being different, distinct and distant become one in the bridge

without ceasing to be different and distinct, but ceasing already to be distant. #Quote by Zapatistas
Social Justice quotes by Arundhati Roy
#105. Fascism itself can only be turned away if all those who are outraged by it show a commitment to social justice that equals the intensity of their indignation. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Social Justice quotes by Maya Angelou
#106. The plague of racism is insidious, entering into our minds as smoothly and quietly and invisibly as floating airborne microbes enter into our bodies to find lifelong purchase in our bloodstreams. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Social Justice quotes by Sophocles
#107. Ugly deeds are taught by ugly deeds. #Quote by Sophocles
Social Justice quotes by Bernard Williams
#108. It may be that considerations of justice are a central element of ethical thought that transcends the relativism of distance. Perhaps this, too, comes from a feature of the modern world. We have various conceptions of social justice, with different political consequences; each has comprehensible roots in the past and in our sentiments. Since we know that we do not accept their past legitimations, but otherwise are not sure how to read them, we are disposed to see past conceptions of justice as embodiments of ideas that still have a claim on modern people. To this extent, we see them as in real confrontation with each other and with modern ideas. #Quote by Bernard Williams
Social Justice quotes by Atal Bihari Vajpayee
#109. Freedom is incomplete without social justice. #Quote by Atal Bihari Vajpayee
Social Justice quotes by DeRay Mckesson
#110. In fighting to help this country, this world. To be one that is worthy of the beauty of your life, you will undoubtedly experience pain – the normal pain of life and the pain of struggle. But pain is not who you are. You are, and have always been, more than your pain. #Quote by DeRay Mckesson
Social Justice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#111. Can you imagine sitting in the passenger seat and back seat of a car and watching a cop shoot and kill your husband and father? #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Social Justice quotes by Mark Steyn
#112. No one likes to think of himself as a coward. People prefer to think they end up yielding to what the terrorists demand, not because it's safer or more convenient, but because it's the right thing..Successful terrorism persuades the terrorized that if they do terror's bidding, it's not because they're terrified but because they're socially concerned.' [George Jonas]
This is true. Resisting terror is exhausting. It's easier to appease it, but, for the sake of your self-esteem, you have to tell yourself you're appeasing is in the cause of some or other variant of 'social justice'. #Quote by Mark Steyn
Social Justice quotes by Lydia M. Child
#113. Yours for the unshackled exercise of every faculty by every human being. #Quote by Lydia M. Child
Social Justice quotes by Teresa Of Avila
#114. Seldom or never is a poor man honored by the world; however worthy of honor he may be, he is apt rather to be despised by it. #Quote by Teresa Of Avila
Social Justice quotes by Simon S. Tam
#115. Racism doesn't have to fit our stereotypes for what it is in order for it to hurt - but it also means that tools for dismantling the system don't have it fit our stereotype either. #Quote by Simon S. Tam
Social Justice quotes by Patricia Schroeder
#116. I have a brain and a uterus, and I use both. #Quote by Patricia Schroeder
Social Justice quotes by Ann Nocenti
#117. I know I've erred in the past putting too much of my social justice sentiments in comics, but hopefully not too much, and I tried to only do that with characters that it made sense with it. These days, with the 'social justice' aspects of the two books I write, 'Catwoman' and 'Katana,' the concerns are more about moral justice. #Quote by Ann Nocenti
Social Justice quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#118. The great masquerade of evil has played havoc with all our ethical concepts. For evil to appear disguised as light, charity, historical necessity, or social justice is quite bewildering to anyone brought up on our traditional ethical concepts, while for the Christian who bases his life on the Bible, it merely confirms the fundamental wickedness of evil. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Social Justice quotes by Luther Standing Bear
#119. "Civilization" has been thrust upon me since the days of the reservations, and it has not added one whit to my sense of justice, to my reverence for the rights of life, to my love for truth, honesty, and generosity, or to my faith in Wakan Tanka, God of the Lakotas. #Quote by Luther Standing Bear
Social Justice quotes by Pearl S. Buck
#120. To serve is beautiful, but only if it is done with joy and a whole heart and a free mind. #Quote by Pearl S. Buck
Social Justice quotes by Rosa Parks
#121. I believe we are here on the planet Earth to live, grow up and do what we can to make this world a better place for all people to enjoy freedom. #Quote by Rosa Parks
Social Justice quotes by Jen Hatmaker
#122. We stand at the intersection of extreme privilege and extreme poverty, and we have a question to answer: Do I care? Am I moved by the suffering of all nations? Am I even concerned about the homeless guy on the corner? Am I willing to take the Bible at face value and concur that God is obsessed with social justice? I won't answer one day for how the US government spent billions of dollars on the war in Iraq ($816 billion and counting, when $9 billion would solve the planet's water crisis[36]), nor will I get the credit for the general philanthropy of others. It will come down to what I did. What you did. What we did together. #Quote by Jen Hatmaker
Social Justice quotes by Kierra C.T. Banks
#123. I live for moments when I dare to be ME in spite of all that I "should" be. #Quote by Kierra C.T. Banks
Social Justice quotes by George Draffan
#124. The processes of corporate power do not work in isolation. The economic and legal mechanisms that allow the privatization of the commonwealth, externalization of costs, predatory economic practices, political influence-buying, manipulation of regulation and deregulation, control of the media, propaganda and advertising in schools, and the use of police and military forces to protect the property of the wealthy-all of these work synergistically to weave a complex web of power.

Activists have dedicated lifetimes of necessary work to deal with the results of corporate power, by trying to mitigate the results of power: an ever-increasing disparity in wealth and power and continual economic, political, environmental, and human rights crises. For social justice campaigns to be strategic, it is also necessary to examine how privatization, externalization, monopoly, and other corporate power processes have been institutionalized. This institutionalization is exemplified in the structural adjustment programs of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, and in recent "free" trade agreements which have culminated in the creation of the World Trade Organization. An understanding of such institutions provides a necessary tool for achieving the long-term goals of environmental sustainability and social justice. #Quote by George Draffan
Social Justice quotes by Oscar A. Romero
#125. A church that does not provoke any crisis, preach a gospel that does not unsettle, proclaim a word of God
that does not get under anyone's skin or a word of God that does not touch the real sin of the society in which
it is being proclaimed: what kind of gospel is that? #Quote by Oscar A. Romero
Social Justice quotes by Rebecca West
#126. ...[A] rebel who is inaccurate and mad is a traitor. #Quote by Rebecca West
Social Justice quotes by Jane Addams
#127. In the unceasing ebb and flow of justice and oppression we must all dig channels as best we may, that at the propitious moment somewhat of the swelling tide may be conducted to the barren places of life. #Quote by Jane Addams
Social Justice quotes by Rivera Sun
#128. The Earth was singing her revolution. She was calling her brave men and women to her defense. #Quote by Rivera Sun
Social Justice quotes by Nikki Giovanni
#129. Everything will change. The only question is growing up or decaying. #Quote by Nikki Giovanni
Social Justice quotes by Roger Scruton
#130. The leading virtue of conservative politics as I see it is the preference for procedure over ideological programs. Liberals tend to believe that government exists in order to lead the people into a better future, in which liberty, equality, social justice, the socialist millennium, or something of that kind will be realized. ... Conservatives believe that the role of government is not to lead society towards a goal but to ensure that, wherever society goes, it goes there peacefully. Government exists in order to conciliate opposing views, to manage conflicts, and to ensure peaceful transactions between the citizens, as they compete in the market, and associate in what Burke called their "little platoons. #Quote by Roger Scruton
Social Justice quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#131. He that knows himself, knows others; and he that is ignorant of himself, could not write a very profound lecture on other men's heads. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Social Justice quotes by Emmeline Pankhurst
#132. We have to free half of the human race, the women, so that they can help free the other half. #Quote by Emmeline Pankhurst
Social Justice quotes by Brene Brown
#133. If we choose not to get involved or pretend it's not happening, we're going against the very sense of connection that makes us human. #Quote by Brene Brown
Social Justice quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#134. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Social Justice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#135. We aren't asking for any more rights than anyone else in this country. We're not trying to take anything or anyone's rights away. We're not looking for a handout unless it is a handout in friendship. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Social Justice quotes by Mark Twain
#136. Patriotism is usually the refuge of the scoundrel. He is the man who talks the loudest. #Quote by Mark Twain
Social Justice quotes by Elvia Alvarado
#137. Ronald Reagan goes around saying that Nicaragua is communist and that communism is a threat to Central America. Why doesn't he say that he's a big capitalist, and that capitalism has made a great mess of Central America? Why doesn't he talk about what capitalism has done? We don't know what communism is, but we sure know what capitalism has done for us! #Quote by Elvia Alvarado
Social Justice quotes by James        Williams
#138. …the narratives we tell to justify a single set of laws and stakes are inherently unjust. #Quote by James Williams
Social Justice quotes by Austin Channing Brown
#139. And when we talk about race today, with all the pain packed into that conversation, the Holy Spirit remains in the room, This doesn't mean the conversations aren't painful, aren't personal, aren't charged with emotion. But it does mean we can survive. We can survive honest discussions about slavery, about convict leasing, about stolen land, deportation, discrimination, and exclusion. We can identify the harmful politics of gerrymandering, voter suppression, criminal justice laws, and policies that disproportionately affect people of color negatively. And we can expose the actions of white flight, the real impact of all-white leadership, the racial disparity in wages, and opportunities for advancement. We can lament and mourn. We can be livid and enraged. We can be honest. We can tell the truth. We can trust that the Holy Spirit is here. We must.
For only by being truthful about how we got here can we begin to imagine another way. #Quote by Austin Channing Brown
Social Justice quotes by Robert Chao Romero
#140. It might come as a surprise, but the Bible also addresses the importance of corporate responsibility. The Old Testament "law of gleaning" speaks loud and clear about this. Leviticus 19: 9-10 (NIV) summarizes this important social justice law which is also restated in Deuteronomy 24: "'When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Do not go over your vineyard a second time or pick up the grapes that have fallen. Leave them for the poor and the foreigner. I am the LORD your God." This law from God Himself, commanded landowners, business owners in our language today, to leave some of their potential profits for immigrants and the poor. #Quote by Robert Chao Romero
Social Justice quotes by Craig M. Gay
#141. Christian hope frees us to act hopefully in the world. It enables us to act humbly and patiently, tackling visible injustices in the world around us without needing to be assured that our skill and our effort will somehow rid the world of injustice altogether. Christian hope, after all, does not need to see what it hopes for (Heb. 11:1); and neither does it require us to comprehend the end of history. Rather, it simply requires us to trust that even the most outwardly insignificant of faithful actions - the cup of cold water given to the child, the widow's mite offered at the temple, the act of hospitality shown to the stranger, none of which has any overall strategic socio-political significance so far as we can now see - will nevertheless be made to contribute in some significant way to the construction of God's kingdom by the action of God's creative and sovereign grace. #Quote by Craig M. Gay
Social Justice quotes by Alija Izetbegovic
#142. The question is whether they can find a way out and remain what they are. To adapt themselves to real life, they borrow from each other. Christianity , which has become a church, began to talk about work, wealth, power, education, science, marriage, laws, social justice, and so forth. And materialism , on the other hand, which became socialism or an order, a state, speaks about humanism , morality, art, creation, justice, responsibility, freedom and so forth. #Quote by Alija Izetbegovic
Social Justice quotes by Marian Wright Edelman
#143. The future which we hold in trust for our own children will be shaped by our fairness to other people's children. #Quote by Marian Wright Edelman
Social Justice quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#144. To oppose one class perpetually to another - young against old, manual labor against brain-worker, rich against poor, woman against man - is to split the foundations of the State; and if the cleavage runs too deep, there remains no remedy but force and dictatorship. If you wish to preserve a free democracy, you must base it - not on classes and categories, for this will land you in the totalitarian State, where no one may act or think except as the member of a category. You must base it upon the individual Tom, Dick and Harry, and the individual Jack and Jill - in fact, upon you and me. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Social Justice quotes by Pope Francis
#145. I think of the difficulties which, in various countries, today afflicts the world of work and business; I think of how many, and not just young people, are unemployed, many times due to a purely economic conception of society, which seeks selfish profit, beyond the parameters of social justice. #Quote by Pope Francis
Social Justice quotes by Frederick Douglass
#146. The white man's happiness cannot be purchased by the black man's misery. #Quote by Frederick Douglass
Social Justice quotes by Paul Robeson
#147. This is our home and this is our country. Beneath its soil lie bones of our fathers; for it some of them fought, bled, and died. Here we were born and here we will stay. #Quote by Paul Robeson
Social Justice quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#148. With all of its false assumptions and evil methods, communism grew as a protest against the hardships of the underprivileged. Communism in theory emphasized a classless society, and a concern for social justice, though the world knows from sad experience that in practice it created new classes and a new lexicon of injustice. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Social Justice quotes by Wil S. Hylton
#149. The tragedy of Eliot Spitzer is almost Greek: Ascendant son of wealth and privilege dedicates his life to social justice, warns of the corruption lurking among us, and falls victim to his inner demons at the very moment of vindication. #Quote by Wil S. Hylton
Social Justice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#150. Can a black man get justice in a sea of white? #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Social Justice quotes by Chiyo Uno
#151. I don't wish to not be a woman, but I'd certainly like to be a woman whose sense of purpose comes from within. #Quote by Chiyo Uno
Social Justice quotes by Gloria Steinem
#152. It still may take some explaining, but many more women are keeping their birth names (and not calling them maiden names, with all the sexual double standards that implies). #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Social Justice quotes by Lesley Hazleton
#153. All three, that is, were originally driven by ideals of justice and egalitarianism, rejecting the inequities of human power in favor of a higher and more just one. No matter how far they might have strayed from their origins as they became institutionalized over time, the historical record clearly indicates that what we now call the drive for social justice was the idealistic underpinning of monotheistic faith. #Quote by Lesley Hazleton
Social Justice quotes by Sarah-Patton Boyle
#154. Our minorities alone are in a position to know what the fathers of our democracy were talking about. #Quote by Sarah-Patton Boyle
Social Justice quotes by Pope Francis
#155. As religious leaders, we are called to be true "people of dialogue," to cooperate in building peace not as intermediaries but as authentic mediators. Intermediaries seek to give everyone a discount ultimately in order to gain something for themselves. However, the mediator is one who retains nothing for himself but rather spends himself generously until he is consumed, knowing that the only gain is peace. Each one of us is called to be an artisan of peace, by uniting and not dividing, by extinguishing hatred and not holding on to it, by opening paths to dialogue and not by constructing new walls! Let us dialogue and meet one another in order to establish a culture of dialogue in the world, a culture of encounter. #Quote by Pope Francis
Social Justice quotes by Ten Bears
#156. Great Spirit-I want no blood upon my land to stain the grass. I want it all clear and pure, and I wish it so, that all who go through among my people may find it peaceful when they come, and leave peacefully when they go. #Quote by Ten Bears
Social Justice quotes by Christopher Langan
#157. [There is] no direct relationship between IQ and economic opportunity. In the supposed interests of fairness and "social justice", the natural relationship has been all but obliterated.

Consider the first necessity of employment, filling out a job application. A generic job application does not ask for information on IQ. If such information is volunteered, this is likely to be interpreted as boastful exaggeration, narcissism, excessive entitlement, exceptionalism [...] and/or a lack of team spirit. None of these interpretations is likely to get you hired.

Instead, the application contains questions about job experience and educational background, neither of which necessarily has anything to do with IQ. Universities are in business for profit; they are run like companies, seek as many paying clients as they can get, and therefore routinely accept people with lukewarm IQ's, especially if they fill a slot in some quota system (in which case they will often be allowed to stay despite substandard performance). Regarding the quotas themselves, these may in fact turn the tables, advantaging members of groups with lower mean IQ's than other groups [...] sometimes, people with lower IQ's are expressly advantaged in more ways than one.

These days, most decent jobs require a college education. Academia has worked relentlessly to bring this about, as it gains money and power by monopolizing the employment market across the spectrum. Because there is a glu #Quote by Christopher Langan
Social Justice quotes by Tariq Ramadan
#158. The nature of the state is one thing, but there are other major challenges - what it will take to tackle the issues of social corruption, for example, social justice, and the economic system - and what are the future challenges when it comes to equality between the citizens, in particular in the field of the job market and equal opportunity for men and for women? This is at the centre of the question that is the Arab Awakening. #Quote by Tariq Ramadan
Social Justice quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#159. No reform is possible unless some of the educated and the rich voluntarily accept the status of the poor, travel third, refuse to enjoy the amenities denied to the poor, and instead of taking avoidable hardships, discourtesies, and injustice as a matter of course, fight for their removal. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Social Justice quotes by James Finley
#160. Compassion forms the essential bond between seeking God in meditation and all forms of social justice. For the more we are transformed in compassion, the more we are impelled to act with compassion toward others. #Quote by James Finley
Social Justice quotes by B.F. Skinner
#161. Unable to understand how or why the person we see behaves as he does, we attribute his behavior to a person we cannot see, whose behavior we cannot explain either but about whom we are not inclined to ask questions. #Quote by B.F. Skinner
Social Justice quotes by Beverly Daniel Tatum
#162. To say that it is not our fault does not relieve us of responsibility. However, we may not have polluted the air, but we need to take responsibility, along with others, for cleaning it up. Each of us needs to look at our own behavior. Am I perpetuating and reinforcing the negative messages so pervasive in our culture, or am I seeking to challenge them? #Quote by Beverly Daniel Tatum
Social Justice quotes by Debby Irving
#163. If there's a place for tolerance in racial healing, perhaps it has to do with tolerating my own feelings of discomfort that arise when a person, of any color, expresses emotion not welcome in the culture of niceness. It also has to do with tolerating my own feelings of shame, humiliation, regret, anger, and fear so I can engage, not run. For me, tolerance is not about others, it's about accepting my own uncomfortable emotions as I adjust to a changing view of myself as imperfect and vulnerable. As human. #Quote by Debby Irving
Social Justice quotes by John Scalzi
#164. Dreher laments we now live in a "post-Christian" America, but he's wrong. The Americans who are standing with their loved ones and neighbors are in fact doing exactly what Jesus asked them to do, when he said that we should love each other as we love ourselves. It's possible, however, that we live in a post-accepting-bigotry-cloaking-itself-in-the-raiments-of-Christ America. And, you know. I can live in that America just fine. #Quote by John Scalzi
Social Justice quotes by Corneliu Zelea Codreanu
#165. From this Legionary school a new man will have to emerge, a man with heroic qualities; a giant of our history to do battle and win over all the enemies of our Fatherland, his battle and victory having to extend even beyond the material world into the realm of invisible enemies, the powers of evil. Everything that our mind can imagine as more beautiful spiritually; everything the proudest that our race can produce, greater, more just, more powerful, wiser, purer, more diligent and more heroic, this is what the Legionary school must give us! A man in whom all the possibilities of human grandeur that are implanted by God in the blood of our people be developed to the maximum. This hero, the product of Legionary education, will also know how to elaborate programs; will also know how to solve the Jewish problem; will also know how to organize the state well; will also know how to convince other Romanians; and if not, he will know how to win, for that is why he is a hero. This hero, this Legionary of bravery, labour, and justice, with the powers God implanted in his soul, will lead our Fatherland on the road of its glory. #Quote by Corneliu Zelea Codreanu
Social Justice quotes by Narendra Modi
#166. We must together build an economic agenda for the India of our dreams that translates into improved standards of living, increased human well-being and assured social justice. #Quote by Narendra Modi
Social Justice quotes by Arun Gandhi
#167. When we over consume the Earth's resources, we create an economic imbalance in societies and in the world. Affluent people and affluent societies can afford to buy everything in large quantities. They have an abundance of wealth and think they have the license to waste. They use a great deal and leave others with very little. It is this imbalance between rich and poor that gives rise to crime, violence, prejudice, and other negative attitudes.

When some people cannot get what they need through honest hard work, and see others wasting what is so precious, they feel justified in taking it by force. The Earth can only produce enough for everyone's need, but not for everyone's greed. Our greed and wasteful habits perpetuate poverty, which is violence against humanity. #Quote by Arun Gandhi
Social Justice quotes by William Wells Brown
#168. This is called 'the land of the free and the home of the brave'; it is called the 'asylum of the oppressed,' and some have been foolish enough to call it the 'Cradle of Liberty.' If it is the 'Cradle of Liberty,' they have rocked the child to death. #Quote by William Wells Brown
Social Justice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#169. Can a black man succeed today beyond his wildest imagination? Can he experience the so-called American dream? Sure he can! He can overcome bigotry and societal views and ideas that stand in his way. But that doesn't mean that he, unlike his white counterpart, doesn't have to rise above adverse societal views and bigotry. . . #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Social Justice quotes by Frantz Fanon
#170. Anti-Semitism hits me on the head: I am enraged, I am bled white by an appalling battle, I am deprived of the possibility of being man. I cannot disassociate myself from the future that is proposed for my brother. #Quote by Frantz Fanon
Social Justice quotes by Bell Hooks
#171. Indeed, all the great movements for social justice in our society have strongly emphasized a love ethic. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Social Justice quotes by Milo Yiannopoulos
#172. Virtue signaling can best be explained as the devotion of a person's entire existence to explaining how wonderful they (and their friends) are, and how terribly wrong everyone else is. The point of virtue signaling is to demonstrate superiority, for the purpose of consolidating power, prestige and financial reward. The culture of social justice is set up to reward the loudest and best complainers and to punish anyone that stands against them. #Quote by Milo Yiannopoulos
Social Justice quotes by John Oliver Killens
#173. Along with the fight to desegregate schools, we must desegregate the entire cultural statement of America, we must desegregate the minds of the American people or we will find that we have won the battle and lost the war. #Quote by John Oliver Killens
Social Justice quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#174. This Revolution is genuine because it was born from the same womb that always gives birth to massive social upheavals - the womb of intolerable conditions and unendurable situations. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Social Justice quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#175. The unbreakable bond between love of God and love of neighbor is emphasized. One is so closely connected to the other that to say that we love God becomes a lie if we are closed to our neighbor or hate him altogether. Saint John's words should rather be interpreted to mean that love of neighbor is a path that leads to the encounter with God, and that closing our eyes to our neighbor also blinds us to God. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Social Justice quotes by Rivera Sun
#176. This world does not grow from violent roots. It flowers from the seeds of love and respect planted in our hearts. It arises in people who hold the dignity of others in equal measure to their determination for justice. It emerges in the hearts of those who remember that the greatest courage is to move from love instead of hate. #Quote by Rivera Sun
Social Justice quotes by Toni Cade Bambara
#177. The dream is real, my friends. The failure to make it work is the unreality. #Quote by Toni Cade Bambara
Social Justice quotes by Henry McNeal Turner
#178. The Fourth of July-memorable in the history of our nation as the great day of independence to its countrymen-had no claim upon our sympathies. They made a flag and threw it to the heavens and bid it float forever; but every star in it was against us. #Quote by Henry McNeal Turner
Social Justice quotes by Pope Francis
#179. No one must say that they cannot be close to the poor because their own lifestyle demands more attention to other areas. This is an excuse commonly heard in academic, business or professional, and even ecclesial circles. While it is quite true that the essential vocation and mission of the lay faithful is to strive that earthly realities and all human activity may be transformed by the Gospel, none of us can think we are exempt from concern for the poor and for social justice #Quote by Pope Francis
Social Justice quotes by Donald Miller
#180. I talk about love, forgiveness, social justice; I rage against American materialism in the name of alturism, but have I even controlled my own heart? The overwhelming majority of time I spend thinking about myself, pleasing myself, reassuring myself, and when I am done there is nothing to spare for the needy. Six billion people live in this world, and I can only muster thoughts for one. Me. #Quote by Donald Miller
Social Justice quotes by Elvia Alvarado
#181. They [the church] wanted us to give food out to malnourished mothers and children, but they didn't want us to question why we were malnourished to begin with. They wanted us to grow vegetables on the tiny plots around our houses, but they didn't want us to question why we didn't have enough land to feed ourselves. [p. 16] #Quote by Elvia Alvarado
Social Justice quotes by John Mackey
#182. I started out young and idealistic, and it was all about social justice and fair distribution of resources. I didn't understand why everybody couldn't be equally prosperous. #Quote by John Mackey
Social Justice quotes by Svetlana Chmakova
#183. All right, let's consider some history here. I see a number of girls are wearing pants. This used to be frowned upon. In 1938, Helen Hulick was jailed for wearing slacks -- put behind bars.

Do you think society should have the right to jail or punish you for what you choose to wear? #Quote by Svetlana Chmakova
Social Justice quotes by Rivera Sun
#184. With Love, the pivot of change emerges, the lever stretches long enough to move the world, the arc of the universe bends toward justice, the spirit of humanity soars, and the flood of life revives. #Quote by Rivera Sun
Social Justice quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#185. A major part of sustainability is social justice, here and everywhere. Think of it this way: justice is a technology. It's like a software program that we use to cope with the world and get along with each other, and one of the most effective we have ever invented, because we are all in this together. When you realize that acting with justice and generosity turns out to be the most effective technology for dealing with other people, that's a good thing. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Social Justice quotes by Bobby Seale
#186. Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts. #Quote by Bobby Seale
Social Justice quotes by Margaret Laurence
#187. It is my feeling that as we grow older we should become not less radical but more so. I do not, of course, mean this in any political-party sense, but rather in a willingness to struggle for those things in which we passionately believe. Social activism and the struggle for social justice are often thought of as the natural activities of the young but not of the middle-aged or the elderly. In fact, I don't think this was ever true. #Quote by Margaret Laurence
Social Justice quotes by Ronnie McBrayer
#188. We in the revivalist tradition have viewed grace only in terms of privatized, individualized spirituality. Give people enough Jesus to save their souls, move them to an emotional decision, help them get their hearts right and acquire a more responsible morality, and that will be enough. But that is not enough. It is not even the beginning of enough. God was concerned about those living in dire suffering long before Bono, Angelina Jolie, or George Clooney turned into social activists. #Quote by Ronnie McBrayer
Social Justice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#189. When Zachary Blake is passionate about an issue, everyone, including loving family members, must get with the program or get out of his way. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Social Justice quotes by Audre Lorde
#190. If I cannot air this pain and alter it, I will surely die of it. That's the beginning of social protest. #Quote by Audre Lorde
Social Justice quotes by John Scalzi
#191. Virtue signaling' is a phrase the dim and bigoted use when they want to discount other people expressing the idea that it would be nice if we could all be essentially and fundamentally decent to each other. #Quote by John Scalzi
Social Justice quotes by Casey Matthews
#192. She'd never put words to it, but she believed most humans wanted laws - to feel safe from people with the wrong amount of money, the wrong color skin, the wrong religion or thoughts or words, and so they begged for them. They worshipped laws, because laws were how they puffed themselves up and pushed their foes into the mud. In one blink of Ryn's eye, though, the laws turned around like tigers and mauled the ones who made them. It was idiotic, and she felt bad for Naomi's father, because he had a principle; but there weren't many like him. Most of their kind loved flags. Most deserved to choke on them. #Quote by Casey Matthews
Social Justice quotes by Jordan B. Peterson
#193. If you have a comprehensive explanation for everything then it decreases uncertainty and anxiety and reduces your cognitive load. And if you can use that simplifying algorithm to put yourself on the side of moral virtue then you're constantly a good person with a minimum of effort. #Quote by Jordan B. Peterson
Social Justice quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#194. Nearly all great civilizations that perished did so because they had crystallized, because they were incapable of adapting themselves to new conditions, new methods, new points of view. It is as though people would rather die than change. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Social Justice quotes by Henri Frederic Amiel
#195. Righteous ends, thus approved, absolve of guilt the most violent means. #Quote by Henri Frederic Amiel
Social Justice quotes by B.R. Ambedkar
#196. While I am prepared to bear with the imperfections and shortcomings of the society in which I may be destined to labour, I feel I should not consent to live in a society which cherishes wrong ideals, or a society which, having right ideals, will not consent to bring its social life into conformity with those ideals. #Quote by B.R. Ambedkar
Social Justice quotes by Rivera Sun
#197. Roots, he wrote, symbolize more than underground strong-arms. Roots are also origins, the tendrils of a sprouting seed that give rise to life. #Quote by Rivera Sun
Social Justice quotes by Kermit Roosevelt III
#198. I never wanted to safe... I wanted to be good. #Quote by Kermit Roosevelt III
Social Justice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#199. When a little black kid disappears and the media ignores it, so does the public. I know you know this. Not only that but how much media coverage a case gets has a direct relationship to how much manpower the brass assigns to solving that case. It also impacts whether or not the feds get involved. I know you know this too, dammit . . ."

#201. Here is interesting thought to play with,

World is based on information you go in social media... what in reality you are doing is sharing data, books when you are reading, what you are doing is diving in deeper level of topic most cases pointvof view from one person, to write a book is about to share experience. #Quote by Deyth Banger
Social Justice quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#202. We know: of course, with regard to the market and similar social structures, a great many facts which we cannot measure and on which indeed we have only some very imprecise and general information. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Social Justice quotes by Valarie Kaur
#203. Today I remember all that is beautiful and good and worth fighting for.
Today I remember that the labor for justice has gone on for centuries before me and will go on for centuries after me.
Today I remember that I am not alone - that if millions of women are listening to the wisdom within them too, and still choose to return to the work, then we will usher in a new era - where women are believed, where women lead. #Quote by Valarie Kaur
Social Justice quotes by Terri Sewell
#204. When you have incidences like the Trayvon Martin verdict, the erosion of certain fundamental rights like voting, it just reminds us that we're always one Supreme Court justice vote away from losing the progress that has been made. #Quote by Terri Sewell
Social Justice quotes by Zadie Smith
#205. World makers, social network makers, ask one question first: 'How can I do it?' #Quote by Zadie Smith
Social Justice quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#206. Even the dog is described by the poet to have received justice under Ramarajya. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Social Justice quotes by Isaac Asimov
#207. I would argue that a truly developed country would be beyond Presidents and Kings. In a world with some semblance of equality, each liberal-minded woman, each gay person, and indeed almost every person could be their own President. In a world of equals, what real service does a ruler provide? #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Social Justice quotes by Anonymous
#208. YouTube is still the big gorilla of online video, especially as an archive for work with lasting appeal and as a place where creators can make money from ads sold around their material. But Facebook's ability to use social connections to make content popular quickly, along with changes the social network has made to its news feed to showcase video better, have helped fuel rapid growth in the amount of video viewed on the service over the last year. #Quote by Anonymous
Social Justice quotes by Herbert V. Prochnow
#209. We have come to world leadership because our people have had the opportunity to develop this nation under a government and a Constitution that gave them political freedom and encouraged initiative, enterprise, responsibility, industry and thrift. Freedom and achievement are not unrelated. This nation has become one of history's finest illustrations of how a people can enrich life and raise their whole level of economic well-being when they are given justice, liberty and incentive. #Quote by Herbert V. Prochnow
Social Justice quotes by Sigmar Polke
#210. We were very poor and my family lost everything during the war - our home and our identity. But I'm a believer in luck and think the social conditions you're born into provide the opportunity for you to prove your luck. And I suppose I've been lucky. #Quote by Sigmar Polke
Social Justice quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#211. Do they not deserve our attention, those armies of small-minded and low-graded people, drifting on the waves of their unawareness or misfortune, suffocating in their caves of bewilderment and fading into oblivion? Imminent counteractions might unchain an avalanche of social fallouts if they feel ignored or disregarded. Sheeple's rage is unpredictable and rampant. We must never fail to remember the lessons of history. ("Bread and Satellite") #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Social Justice quotes by Robert Dallek
#212. The so-called second New Deal of 1935 - including the Works Progress Administration, Social Security and the Wagner Act legalizing union labor - represented an effort to meet the rising voices demanding a more aggressive government approach to the collapse of national prosperity. #Quote by Robert Dallek
Social Justice quotes by Daniel Dennett
#213. A child raised on a desert island, alone, without social interaction, without language, and thus lacking empathy, is still a sentient being. #Quote by Daniel Dennett
Social Justice quotes by Karen Hitchcock
#214. If we are to welcome the elderly into our communities and support them to stay there for as long as possible, if we are to attend to the social needs of our elderly citizens both inside and out of institutions, then we need both government intervention and funding, along with the community's engagement and help. #Quote by Karen Hitchcock
Social Justice quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#215. We will not know our own injustice if we cannot imagine justice. We will not be free if we do not imagine freedom. We cannot demand that anyone try to attain justice and freedom who has not had a chance to imagine them as attainable. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Social Justice quotes by John Updike
#216. Journalism has not only its social stimulations but its aesthetic virtues. An invitation into print, from however suspect a source, is an opportunity to make something beautiful, to discover within oneself a treasure that would otherwise have remained buried. #Quote by John Updike
Social Justice quotes by Mitch Kapor
#217. Few industries have the ability to transform society like tech, yet too few companies are asking the questions or working on the problems that would create meaningful social change. #Quote by Mitch Kapor
Social Justice quotes by Esther Duflo
#218. What is lacking in India are decent social services. The health service is a disaster. Education is a disaster. #Quote by Esther Duflo
Social Justice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#219. The sign on the ticket dispenser announced parking was $1.20 per twenty minutes, up to a maximum of $18.00. I should have gone into the parking lot business, less stress, more money. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Social Justice quotes by Rosabeth Moss Kanter
#220. It takes courage to speak up against complacency and injustice while others remain silent. But that's what leadership is. #Quote by Rosabeth Moss Kanter
Social Justice quotes by N.T. Wright
#221. Blessed are the poor in spirit; yours is the kingdom of heaven! What could the church do, not just say, that would make the poor in spirit believe that? Blessed are the mourners; they shall be comforted! How will the mourners believe that, if we are not God's agents in bringing that comfort? Blessed are the meek; they shall inherit the earth. How will the meet ever believe such nonsense if the church does not stand up for the rights against the rich and the powerful, in the name of the crucified Messiah who had nowhere to lay his head? Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for God's justice; how will that message get through, unless we are prepared to stand alongside those who are denied justice and go on making a fuss until they get it? Blessed are the merciful; how are people to believe that, in a world where mercy is weakness, unless we visit the prisoner and welcome the prodigal? Blessed are the pure in heart; how will people believe that, in a world where impurity is a big business, unless we ourselves are worshipping the living God until our own hearts are set on fire and scorched through with his purity? Blessed are the peacemakers; how will we ever learn that, in a world where war in one country means business for another,, unless the church stands in the middle and says that there is a different way of being human, a different way of ordering our common life? Blessed are the persecuted and insulted for the kingdom's sake, for Jesus' sake; how will that message ever #Quote by N.T. Wright

#222. Her social position at Safeway was better than it was at home. #Quote by Nell Zink
Social Justice quotes by Margaret Silf
#223. Prayer that works is prayer that makes a difference, contemplation that turns into action, on behalf of peace and justice in a troubled and unjust world system. Prayer is energy, the energy of love and transformative power. It is given to us to use for the good of all creation. In prayer God gives us the fuel of life, and asks us to live it. #Quote by Margaret Silf
Social Justice quotes by Nelson Mandela
#224. Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Social Justice quotes by Jeane Kirkpatrick
#225. I conclude that it is a fundamental mistake to think that salvation, justice, or virtue come through merely human institutions. #Quote by Jeane Kirkpatrick
Social Justice quotes by Emma Straub
#226. It was officially the most horrible time of the summer, when everyone was starting to come back, unpack, do laundry, repack, and go to school, all while noisily updating social media with pictures of everybody hugging each other and their stupid siblings and their stupid dogs. #Quote by Emma Straub
Social Justice quotes by Karl Marx
#227. The bourgeoisie cannot exist without constantly revolutionizing the instruments of production, and thereby the relations of production, and with them the whole relations of society. Conservation of the old modes of production in unaltered forms, was, on the contrary, the first condition of existence for all earlier industrial classes. Constant revolutionizing of production, uninterrupted disturbance of all social conditions, everlasting uncertainty and agitation, distinguish the bourgeois epoch from all earlier ones. All fixed, fast-frozen relations, with their train of ancient and venerable prejudices and opinions, are swept away; all new-formed ones become antiquated before they can ossify. All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned, and man is at last compelled to face with sober senses his real conditions of life and his relations with his kind. #Quote by Karl Marx
Social Justice quotes by Goldie Hawn
#228. We're social animals; we're meant to be together, but we were never necessarily meant to be together without being together. That was never the plan, I don't think. #Quote by Goldie Hawn
Social Justice quotes by Mark Rubinstein
#229. You don't have to make any decisions right now," Colleen says. "But I'll tell you this. There's life after marriage."

~Excerpt from "Mad Dog Justice #Quote by Mark Rubinstein
Social Justice quotes by Angela Merkel
#230. I'm a person who acknowledges reality. I don't get up every morning and ask myself: What would I do differently if I were chancellor in a black-and-yellow (Christian Democrat and Free Democrat) coalition? The SPD (Social Democratic Party) and the (Christian Democrat and Christian Social) Union stand to weaken their own positions if they don't make this coalition a success. And we both want success. #Quote by Angela Merkel
Social Justice quotes by Carolyn Haines
#231. The deliberate effort of memory for small detail is a social grace that will take a person far. #Quote by Carolyn Haines
Social Justice quotes by Zygmunt Bauman
#232. Every type of social setting produces its own visions of the dangers that threaten its identity, visions made to the measure of the kind of social order it struggles to achieve or to retain. If the self-definition, simultaneously descriptive and postulative, can be thought of as a photographic replica of the setting, visions of threats tend to be the negatives of those photographs. Or, to put this in psychoanalytical terms, threats are projections of society's own inner ambivalence, about its own ways and means, about the fashion in which that society lives and intends to live. #Quote by Zygmunt Bauman
Social Justice quotes by Natalie Imbruglia
#233. I'm not a nightclub person, but you need to have a social life sometimes. #Quote by Natalie Imbruglia
Social Justice quotes by Daisaku Ikeda
#234. The role of humankind is to use the cultural and social environment it has created to devise new global values ... Human relations with nature are intimately bound up in interpersonal relations and with the relation of the self and its inner life. #Quote by Daisaku Ikeda
Social Justice quotes by Henning Mankell
#235. I came to Mozambique in 1986, when I first became involved with Teatro Avenida - a theatre company that stages plays concerned with political and social issues. #Quote by Henning Mankell
Social Justice quotes by Zhang Xin
#236. On the one hand the world is getting more integrated and we should not dismiss social values as "Western" when they are actually modern values. On the other hand, individual countries have their own history and their own evolution. Trade unions, for example, don't play the same role in China as they do in Europe or the US. #Quote by Zhang Xin
Social Justice quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#237. The overload of useless ceremonials and worship have crippled the whole nation. If you want to do good to your nation and yourself, then throw away your ancient ceremonials as far as possible. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Social Justice quotes by Richie Norton
#238. I believe in solving social ills with business skills. #Quote by Richie Norton
Social Justice quotes by Bryan Stevenson
#239. Intuitively we all like to seek the things that are comfortable rather than uncomfortable. But I do think there is a way of saying that if I believe in justice and I believe that justice is a constant struggle, and if I want to create justice, then I have to get comfortable with struggle. #Quote by Bryan Stevenson
Social Justice quotes by Jay Baer
#240. A lot of companies are still using social as the world's shortest press release. #Quote by Jay Baer
Social Justice quotes by Dante Alighieri
#241. Many have justice in their hearts, but slowly it is let fly, for it comes not without council to the bow. #Quote by Dante Alighieri
Social Justice quotes by Barbara Kruger
#242. Money talks. It starts rumors about careers and complicity and speaks of the tragedies and triumphs of our social lives. #Quote by Barbara Kruger
Social Justice quotes by Atom Egoyan
#243. I find it deeply upsetting when I see justice not being served. How do we as human beings deal with the unknown? The West Memphis Three trial is a joke on so many different levels. #Quote by Atom Egoyan
Social Justice quotes by Dennis Hastert
#244. We want to make sure that Social Security is fixed for those people who have had that promise and there's something in the future for our younger workers. And we're not about to do a welfare program. #Quote by Dennis Hastert
Social Justice quotes by Hemant Mehta
#245. Pastor Ted and other evangelical pastors I hear about in the media seem to perceive just about everything to be a threat against Christianity. Evolution is a threat. Gay marriage is a threat. A swear word uttered accidentally on television is a threat. Democrats are a threat. And so on.
I don't see how any of these things pose a threat against Christianity. If someone disagrees with you about politics, or social issues, or the matter of origins, isn't that just democracy and free speech in action? How do opposing viewpoints constitute a threat? #Quote by Hemant Mehta
Social Justice quotes by Michelle Alexander
#246. Reagan's promise to enhance the federal government's role in fighting crime was complicated by the fact that fighting street crime has traditionally been the responsibility of state and local law enforcement. After a period of initial confusion and controversy...the Justice Department announced its intention to cut in half the number of specialists assigned to identify and prosecute white collar criminals and to shift its attention to street crime, especially drug-law enforcement. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Social Justice quotes by F. Sionil Jose
#247. I would like to see all this as a big joke that is being played upon us, but I have seen what was wrought in the past
the men who were destroyed without their being lifted from the dungheap of poverty, without recourse to justice. #Quote by F. Sionil Jose
