Martin Luther King Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr., was the rarest of men. He was brimming over with intellect, courage and true love for his fellow man. God bless him. In honor of his memory the following are a few of my favorite MLK quotes:

"We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools."

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

"Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars... Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."

"The good neighbor looks beyond the external accidents and discerns those inner qualities that make all men human and, therefore, brothers."

"Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."

"I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant."

"In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
---Martin Luther King Jr.
