Submit Biography of Martin Luther King Jr

“Any religion that professes to be concerned with the souls of men and is not concerned with the slums that damn them, the economic conditions that strangle them and the social conditions that cripple them is a dry-as-dust religion.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“I have a dream today” 

Martin Luther King Jr

“But why is God so slow in conquering the forces of evil? Why does not God break in and smash the evil schemes of wicked men?...We are responsible human beings, not blind automatons; persons, not puppets. By endowing us with freedom, God relinquished a measure of his own sovereignty and imposed certain limitations upon himself. If his children are free, they must do his will by a voluntary choice. Therefore, God cannot at the same time impose his will upon his children and also maintain his purpose for man.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“In the end we will remember not the words of our enemies...but the silence of our friends.

Martin Luther King Jr

“Any religion that professes to be concerned about the souls of men and is not concerned about the slums that damn them, the economic conditions that strangle them and the social conditions that cripple them is a spiritually moribund religion awaiting burial.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“Let no man pull you so low as to hate him.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“If a man hasn’t found something he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“And I say to you this morning, that if you have never found something so dear and so precious to you that you will die for it, then you aren't fit to live. You may be 38 years old as I happen to be, and one day some great opportunity stands before you and calls upon you to stand up for some great principle, some great issue, some great cause--and you refuse to do it because you are afraid; you refuse to do it because you want to live longer; you're afraid that you will lose your job, or you're afraid that you will be criticized or that you will lose your popularity or you're afraid that somebody will stab you or shoot at you or bomb your house, and so you refuse to take the stand. Well you may go on and live until you are 90, but you're just as dead at 38 as you would be at 90! And the cessation of breathing in your life is but the belated announcement of an earlier death of the spirit. You died when you refused to stand up for right, you died when you refused to stand up for truth, you died when you refused to stand up for justice.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“Violence is not only impractical but immoral.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“Law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“Communism forgets that life is individual. Capitalism forgets that life is social, and the kingdom of brotherhood is found neither in the thesis of communism nor the antithesis of capitalism but in a higher synthesis. It is found in a higher synthesis that combines the truths of both.” 

Martin Luther King Jr

“There comes a time when people get tired of being trampled over by the iron feet of oppression.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“We must live together as brothers or perish together as fools.”

Martin Luther King Jr

“Until a man is nothing, God can make nothing out of him.” 

Martin Luther King Jr

“Capitalism is always in danger of inspiring men to be more concerned about making a living than making a life. We are prone to judge success by the index of our salaries or the size of our automobiles, rather than by the quality of our service and relationship to humanity.”
