Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations. 1989.
Adlai Ewing Stevenson (190065)
Happily for us, students have not tried to overthrow the Government of the United States, but they certainly are making their views felt in public affairs. I think especially of the participation of American students in the great struggle to advance civil and human rights in America. Indeed, even a jail sentence is no longer a dishonor but a proud achievement.
