The quote above is one of my favorite from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (Nobel Peace Prize winner of in 1964). Dr. King was born in Atlanta GA (U.S.) in January 15 of 1929. He was assassinated on April 4, 1968. The Baptist minister was a social activist who led the Civil Rights Movement in the 50s. He is remembered by one of his most famous quotes, “I have a dream…” (Dr. King). In honor of his memory and his battle against racial discrimination and for social justice and equality, I created this blog in which I am sharing some of his wise quotes.
“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” – —Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” – —Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“It may be true that the law cannot make a man love me, but it can keep him from lynching me, and I think that’s pretty important.” – — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.” – — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“If you succumb to the temptation of using violence in the struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolute night of bitterness and your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos.” – — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“A man who won’t die for something is not fit to live.” – —Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Unfortunately, he died for his cause. The great news, his dream is the dream of many. And, we are working to make it happen.
R.I. P. Dr. King
