Martin Luther King Jr.

"Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light 
of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness."
- Martin Luther King Jr.

"We must rapidly begin the shift from a "thing-oriented" society 
to a "person-oriented" society. When machines and computers, 
profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, 
the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism 
are incapable of being conquered."
- ML King

"Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being 
of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small 
compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way." 
- ML King

"People fail to get along because they fear each other; 
they fear each other because they don't know each other; 
they don't know each other because 
they have not communicated with each other."
- ML King

And by that he means in communion. 
 Not the flat way of digital communication.

"Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal." 
- ML King

"The time is always right to do the right thing." 
- ML King

"We must live together as brothers or perish together as fools."
- ML King

"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."
- ML King

more quotes

The speech Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
gave the night before he was killed - he said these prophetic words,

"Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!

And so I'm happy, tonight.

I'm not worried about anything.

I'm not fearing any man!

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!!"
