"We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear."
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."Martin Luther King, Jr. on Steve Jobs
"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'"Martin Luther King, Jr. on Eleanor Roosevelt
"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear."Martin Luther King, Jr. on Nelson Mandela
"Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen."Martin Luther King, Jr. on Winston Churchill
"There are no easy answers' but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right."Martin Luther King, Jr. on Ronald Reagan
"The art of acceptance is the art of making someone who has just done you a small favor wish that he might have done you a greater one."
"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."
"Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can't ride you unless your back is bent."
"A man who won't die for something is not fit to live."
"A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on the installment plan."
