Some of my favorite quotes from Dr Martin Luther King Jr.
“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. The true neighbor will risk his position, his prestige, and even his life for the welfare of others.”
“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”
“Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”
“Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.”
“I have the audacity to believe that people everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, quality and freedom for their spirit. I believe that what self-centered men have torn down, other centered men can build up.”
“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor. It must be demanded by the oppressed.”
“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
