Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s wisdom...
"We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there "is" such a thing as being too late. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action."
"Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would still go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree."
"There is nothing more majestic than the determined courage of individuals willing to suffer and sacrifice for their freedom and dignity."
"True peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice."
"It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one destiny, affects all indirectly."
