martin luther king

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr has an unprecedented legacy & an impact on the world that still resonates today. Here are 20 of my favorite quotes from the Civil Rights Leader:

1- “A man who won’t die for something is not fit to live.”

2- “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.”

3- “An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”

4- “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

5- “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

6- “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.”

7- “In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

8- “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ “

9- “Means we use must be as pure as the ends we seek.”

10- “Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness.”

11- “Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

12- “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

13- “Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.”

14- “Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will.”

15- “The moral arc of the universe bends at the elbow of justice.”

16- “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.”

17- “We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”

18- “We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.”

19- “When you are right you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative.”

20- “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”
