Protest (5)

If you prick us, do we not bleed?
if you tickle us, do we not laugh?
if you poison us, do we not die?
and if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?
-- William Shakespeare. The Merchant of Venice.

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice,
but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.
-- Elie Wiesel.
