In honor of Dr. King - Quote of the day

Since its Dr. King day, I thought it would be nice to have some of his quotes:

"We have a moral responsibility to be intelligent"

"We are simply seeking to bring into full realization the American dream... A dream of equality of oppportunity, of privilege and property widely distributed; a dream of a land where men no longer argue that the color of a man's skin determines the content of his character..."

"Freedom is not free."

"If a man hasnt discovered something that he will die for, he isnt fit to live."

"Let no force, let no power, let no individual, let no social system cause you to feel that you are inferior."

My favorite book (so far) on Dr. King is a book about he and Malcolm X, entitled
Martin and Malcolm and America: A Dream or a Nightmare by James H. Cone. If you really want to know anything about these men, especially the comparisons between the two, this is the book...
