SOME EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK ARE AS FOLLOWS:

I have a dream...that one day this nation will rise up and live the true meaning of its creed: We hold these truths to be self -evident that all men are created equal...that my four children will live in a nation where they will not be judged by the skin of their colour but the content of their character...`

-Dr.Martin Luther King Jr.

`Non violence is the first article of my faith.It is the last article of my faith...I am here to subbmit to the highest penalty that can be inflicted upon me for what in law is a deliberate crime,but what appears to me to be the highest duty of a citizen.`

-Mahatama Gandhi

`I have come here to speak for the dumb millions of Indians...You will naturally ask me what is caue of such poverty.My rely is that it is because thirty five million pound sterling is taken out of the land every year.Yes it is entirely taken out because it goes to England to make that wealthy country more and more wealthy.`

-Madame Bhikaji Cama

Oratory has the power to move people and rouse nations to revolutions.It has the power to prompt people to make unheard-of sacrifices, and commit darkest deeds. It is perhaps one of the most powerful psychological tools known to man.
