What are nations? Tartars! and Huns! and Chinamen! Like insects they swarm. The historian strives in vain to make them memorable. It is for want of a man that there are so many men.

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured and far away. It is not important that he should mature as soon as an apple tree or an oak.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/33276/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/33276/ <![CDATA[Any fool can make a rule, and every fool will mind it.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/34890/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/34890/ <![CDATA[After the first blush of sin comes its indifference.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/36428/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/36428/ <![CDATA[I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life... I wanted to live so sturdily and so Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life... to drive life into a corner to know it by experience and be able to give an account of it in my next excursion.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/23906/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/23906/ <![CDATA[The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/10718/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/10718/ <![CDATA[I put a piece of paper under my pillow, and when I could not sleep I wrote in the dark.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/10831/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/10831/ <![CDATA[Faith keeps many doubts in her pay.

We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence of the good people. We must come to see that human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability. It comes through the tireless efforts and persistent work of men willing to be co-workers with God, and without this hard work time itself becomes an ally of the forces of social stagnation. We must use time creatively, and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right. Now is the time to make real the promise of democracy, and transform our pending national elegy into a creative psalm of brotherhood. Now is the time to lift our national policy from the quicksand of racial injustice to the solid rock of human dignity.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/44841/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/44841/ <![CDATA[Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/1013/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/1013/ <![CDATA[Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/10275/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/10275/ <![CDATA[To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/194/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/194/ <![CDATA[Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can.

When all men are good and wise, government will of itself decay.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/17698/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/17698/ <![CDATA[The dice of God are always loaded.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/17261/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/17261/ <![CDATA[The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate. So it goes. Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/44960/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/44960/ <![CDATA[Occasionally in life there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meaning can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart. Such is the moment I am presently experiencing. I experience this high and joyous moment not for myself alone but for those devotees of nonviolence who have moved so courageously against the ramparts of racial injustice and who in the process have acquired a new estimate of their own human worth. Many of them are young and cultured. Others are middle aged and middle class. The majority are poor and untutored. But they are all united in the quiet conviction that it is better to suffer in dignity than to accept segregation in humiliation. These are the real heroes of the freedom struggle: they are the noble people for whom I accept the Nobel Peace Prize.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/43080/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/43080/ <![CDATA[The time is always right to do what is right.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/40690/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/40690/ <![CDATA[We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/164/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/164/ <![CDATA[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.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/1068/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/1068/ <![CDATA[The quality, not the longevity, of one's life is what is important.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/1576/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/1576/ <![CDATA[Now, I say to you today my friends, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream.
