martin luther king, jr.
i have decided to stick with love. hate is too great a burden to bear.
darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
to deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.
as long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality persist in our world, none of us can truly rest.
when a man is denied the right to live the life he believes in, he has no choice but to become an outlaw.
where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.
man’s greatness consists in his ability to do and the proper application of his powers to things needed to be done.
i could, as a free man, look across the bay toward the eastern shore where i was born a slave.
