Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
The time is always right to do what is right.The ultimate measure of a person is not where they stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but where they stand at times of challenge and controversy.I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.I look to a day when people will not be judged by the colour of their skin, but by the content of their character.
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.
Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.You can’t separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless they have their freedom.Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, defend yourself.Usually when people are sad, they don’t do anything. They just cry over their condition. But when they get angry, they bring about a change.You’re not to be so blind with patriotism that you can’t face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it.My alma mater was books, a good library…. I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity.Without education, you are not going anywhere in this world.Truth is on the side of the oppressed.
Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. We must take it.
