If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live. Martin Luther King, Jr., speech, Detroit, Michigan, June 23, 1963.
To be a Negro in America is to hope against hope. Martin Luther King, Jr., Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community?, 1967.

It means seeing your mother and father spiritually murdered by the slings and arrows of daily exploitation, and then being hated for being an orphan. Martin Luther King, Jr., Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community?, 1967.
