  • The time is always right to do what is right.
  • A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.
  • Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
  • The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.
  • We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
  • We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.
  • Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’
  • Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
  • Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.
  • If a man has not discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.
  • Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.
  • I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.
  • We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
  • The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.
  • Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
  • In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
  • Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.
  • I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.
  • Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
  • I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
  • The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
  • We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.
  • Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.
  • Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. I am not unmindful of the fact that violence often brings about momentary results. Nations have frequently won their independence in battle. But in spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace.
  • That old law about ‘an eye for an eye’ leaves everybody blind. The time is always right to do the right thing.
  • Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
  • The time is always right to do what is right.
