Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective… We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny… If we are to have peace in the world, men and nations must embrace the nonviolent affirmation that ends and means must cohere.”
Christmas Eve speech, 1967
