   Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations.  1989.
 
 
NUMBER:221
AUTHOR:Adlai Ewing Stevenson (1900–65)
QUOTATION: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.
