Martin Luther King

Martin Luther King, Jr.Born Jan 15 1929 Died Apr 4, 1968

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of good people.

Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better.

An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law.

Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.

In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
