Tribute to Martin Luther King Jr.

In honor of one of the most impactful people in American history, here are a few of my favorite quotes from the brave activist:

These two speak loudly similar messages. If we are heading toward peace we cannot wage war to get there. It’s like George Carlin said, “Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.” We cannot fight fire with fire. Not sure who said this, but “There has to be a revolution, but it has to be a revolution of consciousness.”

Often speaking in terms of morality and judgment, here he is saying that we have to be willing to stand up for what we believe in and take active steps toward making them a reality. Also, we have to be willing to stand up at all, but without going overboard and turning to violence, because that is what they want us to do.

Last but not least I wanted to get philosophical, something a little more left to interpretation. Perhaps what he means to say is everything we notice in life is only a fraction of what there is to be noticed which ultimately contributes more than most people will ever know to the experiences we are having.

Hope you enjoyed this. Have a great day everyone!
