Ralph Johnson Bunche

Einsam fühle ich mich nur dann, wenn ich eine Hand suche – und nur Fäuste finde.

Es gibt keine kriegslüsternen Völker. Es gibt nur kriegslüsterne Führer.

Heads are wisest when they are cool, and hearts are strongest when they beat in response to noble ideals.

There are no warlike peoples – just warlike leaders.

There is no problem of human nature which is insoluble.

There is room in the world for both capitalism and communism and all gradations of them, provided only that neither system set upon pursuing an aggressively imperalistic course.

You can surmount the obstacles in your path if you are determined, courageous and hard-working. Never be fainthearted. Be resolute, but never bitter. Bitterness will serve only to warp your personality. Permit no one to dissuade you from pursuing the goals you set for yourselves. Do not fear to pioneer, to venture down new paths of endeavor.Demand and make good use of your rights, but never fail to discharge faithfully the obligations and responsibilities of good citizenship. Be good Americans.
