Famous quotes containing the words sedition and/or act:

    It is dangerous to tell the people that the laws are unjust; for they obey them only because they think them just. Therefore it is necessary to tell them at the same time that they must obey them because they are laws, just as they must obey superiors, not because they are just, but because they are superiors. In this way all sedition is prevented.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    The important thing is that when you come to understand something you act on it, no matter how small that act is. Eventually it will take you where you need to go.
    Helen Prejean (b. 1940)
