The events after the death of Martin L. King left the country at war with one another. Our quotes bring out the pathos of the time and teach us a lesson.

  1. Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.
  2. Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge, which is power; religion gives man wisdom, which is control. Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values. The two are not rivals.
  3. Property is intended to serve life, and no matter how much we surround it with rights and respect, it has no personal being. It is part of the earth man walks on. It is not man.
  4. We must use time creatively, in the knowledge that the time is always ripe to do right.
  5. There is nothing more tragic than to find an individual bogged down in the length of life, devoid of breadth.
  6. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.
  7. Every man lives in two realms: the internal and the external. The internal is that realm of spiritual ends expressed in art, literature, morals, and religion. The external is that complex of devices, techniques, mechanisms, and instrumentalities by means of which we live.
  8. An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.
  9. Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think.
  10. The past is prophetic in that it asserts loudly that wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows
