Martin Luther King Jr. Riding an Integratedbus after the Montgomery Bus boycott
Faith is taking the first step even when you cant see the wholestaircase. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hatecannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about thingsthat matter. In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, butthe silence of our friends. I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden tobear.
Let no man pull you low enough to hate him. Only in the darkness can you see the stars. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of trueeducation. A man who wont die for something is not fit to live. The time is always right to do the right thing.
I Have a Dream I say to you today, my friends, even though we facethe difficulties of today and tomorrow,I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in theAmerican Dream. I have a dream that one day thisnation will rise up and live out the true meaning of itscreed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident; thal allmen are created equal".
I have a dream that one day down in Alabama with itsvicious racists, with its governor having his lipsdripping with the words of interposition andnullification one day right there in Alabama little blackboys and black girls will be able to join hands withlittle white boys and little white girls as sisters andbrothers.I have a dream today.
