    Default Martin Luther King, Jr Day

    The man said some beautiful things. Feel free to post them.

    Returning violence for violence multiplies violence,
    adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars...
    Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

    ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

    "Look at all the people here this afternoon"

    ???

    I like "We have guided missiles and mis-guided men"




    I still think he ripped of Bill Hicks though.

    Ah, well....here's another of my faves:



    I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation
    where they will not be judged by the color of their skin,
    but by the content of their character.

    I have a dream today.

    You're welcome Eden, but you're on your own from here. That's the only one I know.

    But if you start a Bill Hicks, George Carlin, Ernest Hemingway or William Shakespeare thread, count me in. We'll have a blast.

    Funny to see those four names in the same sentence.

    The comedian Chris Rock when he heard that some people had a problem with it being a official holiday. " It's not like you have to celebrate it in any way. You don't have to go a parade or anything like that. All you have to do is...NOT GO TO WORK!!!"






    That's all i got.

    Really? Wow, dude....welcome to America.

    Funny you should mention ol' Bill. Just came across this in my Addictions textbook:


    All the world's a stage
    And all the men and women merely players
    They have their exits and their entrances
    And one man in his time plays many parts
    His acts being seven ages

    ~ William Shakespeare



    Hmmm.....sounds like he ripped it off from a Rush tune, if ya ask me.

    A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.


    Have we not come to such an impasse in the modern world that we must love our enemies - or else? The chain reaction of evil - hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars - must be broken, or else we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.


    Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him.

    thank you.



    I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

    I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."
