Guess who?

Below is a series of quotes. See if you can guess what person said them all. And if you could share when you figured it all out that would be fun too!:

Evil is not driven out, but crowded out through the explosive power of good.

Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a permanent attitude.

The plea for unity is not a plea for uniformity. There must always be healthy debate.

When I took up the cross, I recognized its meaning...the cross is something that you bear and ultimately die on.

Noncooperation with evil is as much a moral obligation as is cooperation with good.

Now the Judgement of God is upon us, and we must either learn to live together as brothers or we are going to parish together as fools.

Excellent quotes, but I am awful with peoples names, much less what they've said. Hey, about your proposal to write views on "hey bro'. I'm not feelin it right now, at least not on this subject, but I think it would be great to sometimes do that on a subject and post on both our blogs. A subject where we have opposing views. Great idea!

I will give another day for people to guess. I think this is fairly easy though. The person is from an earlier generation though, so maybe GIG will get it when she stops by.
