MLK Day 2008

 Martin Luther King Jr.
civil rights leader & clergyman (1929 – 1968)


“A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”


“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction….The chain reaction of evil–hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars–must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.”


“Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted.”


“Success, recognition, and conformity are the bywords of the modern world where everyone seems to crave the anesthetizing security of being identified with the majority.”


“We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools. “
