Submit Biography of Martin Luther King Jr

“The Western arrogance of feeling that it has everything to teach others and nothing to learn from them is not just.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“One day we will learn that the heart can never be totally right if the head is totally wrong. Only through the bringing together of head and heart—intelligence and goodness—shall man rise to a fulfillment of his true nature.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“Worship at its best is a social experience with people of all levels of life coming together to realize their oneness and unity under God. Whenever the church, consciously or unconsciously caters to one class it loses the spiritual force of the "whosoever will, let him come, doctrine and is in danger of becoming a little more than a social club with a thin veneer of religiosity.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“it is just as wrong, or even perhaps more so, to use moral means to preserve immoral ends.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“During a crisis period, a desperate attempt is made by the extremists to influence the minds of the liberal forces in the ruling majority. So, for example, in the present transition white Southerners attempt to convince Northern whites that the Negroes are inherently criminal.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction. So when Jesus says “Love your enemies,” he is setting forth a profound and ultimately inescapable admonition. Have we not come to such an impasse in the modern world that we must love our enemies– or else? The chain reaction of evil–hate begetting hate, wars producing wars–must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“All too many others have been more cautious than courageous and have remained silent behind the anesthetizing security of stained-glass windows”

Martin Luther King Jr

Martin Luther King Jr

“Oh, the worst of all tragedies is not to die young, but to live until I am seventy-five and yet not ever truly to have lived.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“The Universe is on the side of Justice”

Martin Luther King Jr

“Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree”

Martin Luther King Jr

“In a world facing the revolt of ragged and hungry masses of God's children; in a world torn between the tensions of East and West, white and colored, individuals and collectivists; in a world whose cultural and spiritual power lags so far behind her technological capabilities that we live each day on the verge of nuclear co-annihilation; in this world, nonviolence is no longer an option for intellectual analysis, it is an imperative for action”

Martin Luther King Jr

“I had a dream”

Martin Luther King Jr

“Only through an inner spiritual transformation do we gain the strength to fight vigorously the evils of the world in a humble and loving spirit.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism.”
