A Quote by James William Fulbright on action, dissent, exploring, fear, learning, possibility, thinking, and world

We must dare to think 'unthinkable' thoughts. We must learn to explore all the options and possibilities that confront us in a complex and rapidly changing world. We must learn to welcome and not to fear the voices of dissent. We must dare to think about 'unthinkable things' because when things become unthinkable, thinking stops and action becomes mindless.

A Quote by James William Fulbright on democracy, dissent, faith, medicine, and value

In a democracy dissent is an act of faith. Like medicine, the test of its value is not in its taste, but in its effects.
