Civil Rights Quotes

How does one protect one’s right to freedom from governmental and private institutions? The answer is civil rights, which gives the citizens the power to participate in state affairs without any discrimination. Civil rights gives voice to the voiceless and gives the minority some say among the majority. No wonder, time and again, civil rights have been trampled upon by state agencies. The American Civil War against slavery, The Indian Freedom Movement, and The Anti-Apartheid Movement are notable examples of civil rights. These famous civil right quotations and sayings best describes the necessity of having civil rights.

Thomas Hobbes

The right of nature... is the liberty each man hath to use his own power, as he will himself, for the preservation of his own nature; that is to say, of his own life.
