My 10 Favorite Martin Luther King Jr. Quotations

1. “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

2. “Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a constant attitude.”

3. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

4. “Faith is taking the first step even when you can't see the whole staircase.”

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

6. “There comes a time when silence is betrayal.”

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

8. “Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”

9. “Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.”

10. “As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation -- either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course.”
