…it is not a method of cowardice or stagnant passivity…

The first thing that we can say about this method that seeks justice without violence is that it is not a
method of cowardice or stagnant passivity; it’s not a method to be used by persons filled with fear; by
persons who are merely lacking in weapons of violence. It is not a method of cowardice. As Mohandas
Gandhi used to say “If the only alternative is that between violence and cowardice, I would say use
violence”, but it is good that there is another alternative. And this is not a method of cowardice, and I also
said that it is not a method of stagnant passivity.– MLK, Justice Without Violence
