The Words of a King
"Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can't ride you unless your back is bent."
"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."
"Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."
"In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."
"When you are right you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative."
"The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict."
"The moral arc of the universe bends at the elbow of justice."
"The time is always right to do what is right."
"Wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows."
"We are not makers of history. We are made by history."
"We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now."
"We have guided missiles and misguided men."
"We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools."
"We must use time creatively."
