- Everybody can be
great… because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to
serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only
need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.
- Even if I knew that
tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.
- Human salvation lies in
the hands of the creatively maladjusted.
- It is not enough to say
we must not wage war. It is necessary to love peace and sacrifice for it.
- Life’s most persistent
and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’
- Love is the only force
capable of transforming an enemy into friend.
- Never forget that
everything Hitler did in Germany
- Never succumb to the
temptation of bitterness.
- Nonviolence means
avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of
spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him.
- Peace is not merely a
distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.
- Philanthropy is commendable,
but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook the circumstances of
economic injustice which make philanthropy necessary.
- Wars are poor chisels
for carving out peaceful tomorrows.
- Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice
- Our lives begin to end the day we become silent
about things that matter.
- We may have all come on
different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.
Martin Luther King Jr.
(1929 – 1968)
