In remembrance of Martin Luther King Jr., I collected a small batch of his quotes– full of wisdom, hope and most importantly love for all man. His work and words will live on forever, because they made sense. Plain and simple, his message talks of the simplest things, respect and love in a world full of hate, violence and ignorance.
“Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.”
“Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time; the need for mankind to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to oppression and violence. Mankind must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.”
“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.”
“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.”
