“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” “Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

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

 “Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.”

Comments on: "Quotes by Martin Luther King Jr." (2)

  1. It’s so great that you offered up those comments from Martin Luther King. Few folks of any generation really realize how profound of a personality he was and what kind of example he set. His inspiration and mentors: Mahatma Gandhi and Jesus Christ. Martin walked the walk…

    We could all learn by taking those words to heart.

    Letters From A Birmingham Jail and his speech in 1967 from the Riverside Church in NYC denouncing the Vietnam War are some of the most profound spiritual documents of American history…and that’s not hype…especially the Riverside speech.

    I’m so glad Martin, Rosa, and Harriet stood up for the rights of people and for us to be equal. Without them, we would still be judging people because of something we cnan’t help. God made us equal, but some people still don’t see it. :(
