Text Quotes
Somewhere somebody must have some sense. Men must see that force begets force, hate begets hate, toughness begets toughness. And it is all a descending spiral, ultimately ending in destruction for all and everybody. Somebody must have sense enough and morality enough to cut off the chain of hate and the chain of evil in the universe. And you do that by love  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) History is a great teacher. Now everyone knows that the labor movement did not diminish the strength of the nation but enlarged it. By raising the living standards of millions, labor miraculously created a market for industry and lifted the whole nation to undreamed of levels of production. Those who attack labor forget these simple truths, but history remembers them  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) It is better to be the recipient of violence than the inflicter of it, since the latter only multiplies the existence of violence and bitterness in the universe, while the former may develop a sense of shame in the opponent, and thereby bring about a transformation and change of heart  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) The curse of poverty has no justification in our age. It is socially as cruel and blind as the practice of cannibalism at the dawn of civilization, when men ate each other because they had not yet learned to take food from the soil or to consume the abundant animal life around them. The time has come for us to civilize ourselves by the total, direct and immediate abolition of poverty  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) A third reason why we should love our enemies is that love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend. We never get rid of an enemy by meeting hate with hate; we get rid of an enemy by getting rid of enmity. By its very nature, hate destroys and tears down; by its very nature, love creates and builds up. Love transforms with redemptive power  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) When you cut facilities, slash jobs, abuse power, discriminate, drive people into deeper poverty and shoot people dead whilst refusing to provide answers or justice, the people will rise up and express their anger and frustration if you refuse to hear their cries. A riot is the language of the unheard  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) And I say to you, I have decided to stick with love, for I know that love is ultimately the only answer to mankind’s problems. And I’m going to talk about it everywhere I go. For I have seen too much hate... every time I see it, I know that it does something to their faces and their personalities, and I say to myself that hate is too great a burden to bear. I have decided to love  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) Make a career of humanity... It will enrich your spirit as nothing else possibly can. It will give you that rare sense of nobility that can only spring from love and selflessly helping your fellow man... You will make a greater person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) The labor movement was the principal force that transformed misery and despair into hope and progress. Out of its bold struggles, economic and social reform gave birth to unemployment insurance, old age pensions, government relief for the destitute, and, above all, new wage levels that meant not mere survival but a tolerable life  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) In our society it is murder, psychologically, to deprive a man of a job or an income. You are in substance saying to that man that he has no right to exist. You are in a real way depriving him of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, denying in his case the very creed of his society  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) We must work passionately and indefatigably to bridge the gulf between our scientific progress and our moral progress. One of the great problems of mankind is that we suffer from a poverty of the spirit which stands in glaring contrast to our scientific and technological abundance. The richer we have become materially, the poorer we have become morally and spiritually  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough, can you see the stars  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) Martin Luther King Jr. was a great teacher and just a great person in general  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) When I was teaching in the 1960s in Boston, there was a great deal of hope in the air. Martin Luther King Jr. Was alive, Malcolm X was alive; great, great leaders were emerging from the southern freedom movement  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is a time to honor the greatest champion of racial equality who taught a nation - through compassion and courage - about democracy, nonviolence and racial justice  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) Pigmentation was a quick and convenient way of judging a person. One of us, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., once proposed we instead judge people by the content of their character. He was shot  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) Martin Luther King Jr. is remembered as our prince of peace, of civil rights. We owe him something major that will keep his memory alive  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) One day after laying a wreath at the tomb of Martin Luther King Jr., President Bush appoints a federal judge who has built his career around dismantling Dr. King’s legacy  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes) Using references of current technology, Martin Luther King Jr. could mentally cut and paste better than any individual I have ever known  (Martin Luther King Jr Quotes)
