MLK Quotes

  Today, on the anniversary of Martin Luther King's murder, I searched for important things he said and found many that can be applied to the crisis that too many are being hurt by. I do not believe in all that MLK said, but believe in the following quotes and the need for more people to let their Hearts break the lethal silence and unite in Peaceful stands for the regaining of our Freedom. 

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

“A man has not begun to live until he can rise above the narrow confines of his own individual concerns to the broader concerns of all of humanity.”

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

“In the end we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends.” 

“The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people, but the silence over that by the good.”

“Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for Freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hate.“

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only Love can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only Love can do that.”

“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.”

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional Love will have the final word.”

“Man must evolve, for all of human conflict, a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is Love.”

“The time is always right to do what is right.”

“A right delayed is a right denied.”

“The true measure of a man is not how he behaves in moments of comfort and convenience, but how he stands at times of controversy and challenge.”

“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.”

“We must learn that to expect God to do everything while we do nothing is not faith.” 

Give us STRENGTH, God...to find our way through bullets hidden in microwaves, and COURAGE, God...to make a STAND that saves our lives and FREEs our land.
