--Pidgin version of the Lord's Prayer (from Da Jesus Book, Wycliffe Bible Translators, 2000; www.pidginbible.org)

I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.

-- Martin Luther King Jr. (Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, 1964)
