Martin Luther King, Jr. Wisdom

https://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/m/martin_luther_king_jr.html

“We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive.  He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love.  There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us.  When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.”

“The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it.  Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat.  It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility.”

“The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists who are dedicated to justice, peace and brotherhood.”

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

“We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”

“I have decided to stick with love.  Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
