Words of Wisdom – the prophecy of a man among men.
The prophetic speeches and sermons of Martin Luther King, Jr. persist as measures of humility, character, faith and love.
This quote may stand as the most recognized:
“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.”
Contemplate among the many, these as well:
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
“All progress is precarious, and the solution of one problem brings us face to face with another problem.”
“The art of acceptance is the art of making someone who has just done you a small favor wish that he might have done you a greater one.”
“The past is prophetic in that it asserts loudly that wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows.”
“Capitalism does not permit an even flow of economic resources. With this system, a small privileged few are rich beyond conscience, and almost all others are doomed to be poor at some level. That’s the way the system works. And since we know that the system will not change the rules, we are going to have to change the system.”
“In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
