Dr. King’s Sixth Principle of Nonviolence

Nonviolence believes that the universe is on the side of justice.

“How long will justice be crucified, and truth bear it?" I come to say to you this afternoon, however difficult the moment, however frustrating the hour, it will not be long, because "truth crushed to earth will rise again." How long? Not long, because "no lie can live forever." How long? Not long, because "you shall reap what you sow."…How long? Not long, because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice."

~Martin Luther King, Jr.
