Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.
 

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
 

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.
 

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.
 

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.
       

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.
       

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.
       

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.
       

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

We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
       

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.
       

Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see.
       

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.
       

Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
       

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.
       

A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.
       

We are not makers of history. We are made by history.
       

Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.
       

That old law about 'an eye for an eye' leaves everybody blind. The time is always right to do the right thing.
       

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
       

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood. Martin Luther King, Jr.
       

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

The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: 'If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?' But... the good Samaritan reversed the question: 'If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?'
       

Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.
       

The past is prophetic in that it asserts loudly that wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows.
