Martin Luther King

I was just thinking about Martin Luther King, and how much I love him. I was also thinking about some of the great and provocative things he wrote and said in his too short lifetime. Here's a couple of MLK quotations for you to ponder on these last few days of the year 2009.

Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.

Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

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

Where are the Martin Luther Kings of the world?

Another great quote--thanks for this one! I don't know where the MLKs are--we sure need a couple. OR one!~
