Had we become distracted by the question of my safety we would have lost the moral offensive and sunk to the level of our oppressors. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I also came to see that liberalism's superficial optimism concerning human nature caused it to overlook the fact that reason is darkened by sin. The more I thought about human nature the more I saw how our tragic inclination for sin causes us to use our minds to rationalize our actions. Liberalism failed to see that reason by itself is little more than an instrument to justify man's defensive ways of thinking. Reason, devoid of the purifying power of faith, can never free itself from distortions and rationalizations.... Martin Luther King, Jr.

The use of violence in our struggle would be both impractical and immoral. To meet hate with retaliatory hate would do nothing but intensify the existence of evil in the universe.

Our aim must never be to defeat or humiliate the white man, but to win his friendship and understanding. Martin Luther King, Jr.
