Martin Luther King, Jr.

  • Riots are the voices of the unheard.

  • We must accept Finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope.

  • If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.

  • Agape is disinterested love ...Agape does not begin by discriminating between worthy and unworthy people, or any qualities people, possess. It begins by loving others for their sakes...Therefore, agape makes no distinction between friend and enemy; it is directed toward both.

  • The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

  • We must constantly build dykes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.

  • Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it Hatred darkens life; love illumines it.

  • Non - violence is a powerful and just weapon.It is a weapon unique in history, which cuts without wounding and ennobles the man who wields it. It is a sword that heals.

  • Without love, benevolence becomes egotism.

  • If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.

  • The means by which we live have outdistanced the ends for which we live. Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. we have guided missiles and misguided men.

  • I want to be the white man's brother, not his brother - in - law.

  • Human Salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted.

  • Don't hate, it's too big a burden to bear.

  • The time is always right to do what is right.
