"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at challenge and controversy" ~
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I was looking online for quotes from Martin Luther King, J., many of them I have heard and to me they didn't stand out. When I saw this quote it really stuck-out to me and meant something for me, the class, America. It means that when a challenge or something tough comes your way you can't just wait for an oppurtunity to come to you, you have to put your self out there and tell the world that you can change it.
Nice qoute and explaination.
My favorite quote from Martin Luther King Jr. is "Darkness can not drive away darkness only light can do that." It means that the Black men and women are not driving themselves away the white men and women are doing that. The quote means a lot because we were being very mean to the black people and they weren't even doing anything they weren't harming us in any way we just segregated them because of what they looked like. It was... dumb. They had every right to do whatever they wanted its just we wouldn't let them. I am very happy that we are all equal now.
I definitely agree, your quote was great and you had an excellent explaination.
My favorite Martin Luther King Jr. qoute is "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only light can do that." To me, this qoute means that if you only have darkness, how can anything different from that ever happen. You have to counter darkness with something better, or you will never prevail. For the record, this qoute won't work on me.
I like this quote because it means a lot. I say that becasue it's true. For example, you can change how you look at things if you feel happy (light). You can also change the way how you look if you feel mad (dark).
i like this quote because it means that the BAIS world cannot be driven out by themselves but that someone has to fight back and change the world. This also means Zach will never be good hearted.
"I lie cannot live," is my favorite quote from Martin Luther King jr. because it is one of the most appropriate ones for life. Also, Abe Lincoln had a qoute relating to that: "Honesty is the best policy". Liars can be very mean people. For example, they spread rumors which could harm someone and their career.
I agree this is a very good quote and i thought it was good how you showed another example of another good quote
I do agree with your quote a lie will eventully die or be reveled because eventully you will feel guilt and want to face what is coming even tho you dont want it you need to( face th music)
I agree with this quote because if you make a lie it will also be reavealed in the end. I say that because whenever somebody I know lies somebody they always find out the truth.
I like this quote and
I do agree that if you only have the same thing all the time how can you do somthing different or change something in the world
"We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now." It means to me that we have all came here in different ways but since we are all here right now it matters.
I agree thet peo-ple should be treated equally.
well said this is a good quote like maybe you dont like someone but you have to work with them. so you unite as a team
That is a really good quote. I also really like how you explain it and I think you did a great job!!!, Hadlebury
Yes! I agree with you 100%. We all come from different places, but now we have met! :)
I agree with you! altough we may not have everything in common, we hae one big thing;our country.
I like this quote because it means no matter were we came we are all the same. Nobody is different which means we should all be treated the same way.
"Every man must decide wether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness." I think that this quote means that you must decide wether you want to be great and for everyone to love you, and you be creative and selfless, or all you do is care about yourself and you boss around people who hate you. Martin Luther King Jr. is saying to be different, and anyone can make a difference.
i like your quote it is very original! it is also meaningful and i love it!
My favorite Martin Luther King Jr. quote is "I have a dream." This means to me that he understands what he wants to achieve. He also knows what it will take to achieve that. He is willing to put himself out there to achieve blacks being treated equally.
I like this quote also because its him saying that he wants to be in a world where people are not judged by their skin color or by what they look like.
this quote also speaks to me. when martin luther king said this i thought that he was totally right. martin luther king only said what was right and his dream and now his dream isnt a dream any more it's reality. this quote also tells me that dreams can come true and i hope you see that in this qoute too!
I agree. That quote is very popular for a reason! It shows that he is determined and strong and not afraid to show the world that he can do whatever he puts his mind too!!!!!!!!
I did the same quote! even though its simple I <3 it!
Yay thats what i did. I agree with when u said that he understands. i did the same thing but with my understanding of hockey.
My favorite Martin Luther King Jr. quote is "I have a dream that one day my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but the content of their character. This quote stood out to me because it means that he wants to see his children grow up in a world where they are respected and are judged not by the color of their skin but how they behave and who they are. That is the quote that stood out to me the most.
The quote chose was great Jack. I also like the explanation for why you chose the quote. We are also very lucky that now everyone is treated equally.
Jack great job in describing your quote and picking the most popular quote and being able to describe it
my favorite quote by martin luthar king is (a lie will never last) i chose this quote because the number one things i hate is theifs and liers and I do thing its true a lie will eventully be reveled this also is what this quote means to me
I think this quote is my favorite because like you said elijah a lie will always eventualy be revealed. So if you do something bad why not just tell the truth right then and there so you can get your punishment and not have to get it later.
i agree. Thats what happens with me. I cant lie i will eventuly say it just like this quote.
The quote I picked was that “a lie cannot live.” What I think the quote means is that a person cannot keep a lie forever because in the end it will always be revealed. For example, Lance Armstrong lied about taking drugs and now people do not believe him because he kept lying over and over again. His punishment was that Livestrong would not sponsor him anymore. This also led to his son Luke to be bullied at school because the kids kept calling his dad a liar. His son Luke tried to protect his dad from all the hurtful things all the kids were saying to him. I think Lance Armstrong should not have lied because he lost a lot of responsibilities he had and respect from other people. Why I think a lie cannot live is because people should know the truth about you no matter what.
Great job! I like the details you put into your answer about Lance Armstrong were very strong. Liars never win.
My Favorite quote is man who won't die for something is not fit to live.
Meaning If you wont die for something you are really unhuman in away
I think that quote means a lot because it just means that everyone has to have something that they want so bad and they are willing to do anything for it.
I think your right a person who wont die for somthing isnt mentaly fit in a way because it means you tont care for something as much as you can
this is a good quote like one of the ones from tuck
I agree with this quote becasue somebody will always lose there life for something important to them. For example, my teacher and my parents will do anyhting to keep us alive.
This quote to me means that you needs to make a saccerfis for loved ones and anything you can. For example if my loved one needed a bone marrow like in drums girls i would do it.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
-Martin Luther King Jr.
I like this quote because I feel that it is a true statement. A lot of quotes have a good meaning, but it's hard to figure it out. But this quote has an amazing and easy meaning. This is one of the many quotes from Martin Luther King and after reading about 30 quotes this one stood out to me the most. I also really like how he says "Hate cannot drive out love; only love can do that" to me that is 100% perco true!
I really like this quote. It is was very well explain. This quote sticks out to me to. You did a great job, Hadlebury
very nice quote. I agree that to get rid of bad, more bad will not help, only good will.
Mine is the famous i have a dream. i know it sounds like i didnt try but the quote means a lot to me. Because i didnt want to ask to be a goalie because i was scared but it was my dream to be a goalie and so i asked. now because i think of it that fits the reason for starting goalie. And im glad i did.
trevor i think you did a great job by making this orginal and making his biggest quote and realting to your life.
Honestly it's very hard to chose one quote but one that really speaks to my is '' I've decided to stick with love hate is too great a burden to bear.'' I love this quote because it explains how it takes more energy to hate than to love and that you just shouldn't wast your time on hating just love instead.
awww so true. <3
Ali I agree it is much easier to love so why not just love instead of hate. The world would be a better place if we just loved instead of hate. Things would go much smoother if we just loved it wasts time if we hate.
I like this quote too. I think it has a very powerful and true meaning. Just like you said it means instead of wasting your time and energy hating loving is a lot easier.
I really like your quote because it's true and I love your explaniation. You shouldn't waste your time with hate and should chose to love instead. It's a choice... like what attitude you have every morning.
This quote is SO true and amazing... On top of that your explanation is also wonderful. It helped explain the quote a lot more! Good Job!!!
I agree as well I think that it was really hard to choose, but I think you made a great choices. This quote really sticks out to me. You also did a great job explaining it. Great job !!!... Hadlebury
My favorite Martin Luther King quote is probably "Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step." To me this means a lot. i think it kind of explains that you should follow your dream, even if there is a possibility that it will fail. you will never know unless you try :)
I really like this quote! I think it means alot and I love how it has a wonderful true meaning. Great job explaining!!!!!!
I love this quote, I wish i had found it. It definitely means a lot as far as achieving a goal as big as his.
i chose the same quote i feel as if we have the same idea of this quote to me its a little more like dont be afrid to try something new and chase your dreams this quote to me and to you tell us a lot and is a true statment.
Yeah!Just take one step at a time peppy weppy! That quote is super inspiring!!!!! :):):):):):) : ~} )
My favorite Martin Luther king quote is "faith is taking the first step when you can't see the staircase." I like this quote because I am all about taking chances. ่เำะน่้้ีนยร😃
yeah! that is basically the same quote as what I did.
i like this quote to, definietly all about taking chances and being optimistic and believing in yourself.
" I have a dream" is my favorite quote from martin luther king jr. This is my favorite quote because it symbolizes how no matter how distant or undoable your ideas may seem, as long as you keep it with you in your mind, it can happen. Even if you dont know it dreams happen everywhere. This is why I chose the quote " I have a dream."
This is a fantastic quote, well known and it has a true meaning! I love your explanation because its really well thought out and all true!! ;)
“Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” This quote is one of the most important quotes to me especially be Martin Luther King Jr. because it explains that you can't always be afraid to take the first step and wait for it to be gone so you regret your mistake. Instead it means to show that when an oppurtunity is there you take it with everything you've got otherwise you just might not get it. If you want something you're going to have to work for it and if you don't wanrt to do that then maybe you just do not want it bad enough.
I agreee thet people must take chances in ordrer to live.
Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
This quote means so much to me. This remindes me that you should take the first step in faith even thought you dont know where you will end up in the end but you should always try. Its like when you try out for a sport you dont really like but you still try it you dont see the rest of the stair case or in sports you dont see if this sport is one you really like, but you still try it out to see what happens.
yeah I love this quote <3 It's so true and inspiring! I did the same one :)
I also love this quote.i almost did this one but i didnt exactly know how to explain it but now i do.
I love this quote and I love your explaiation of it. I know that you have to try new things and see what will happen... you'll never know if you don't try.
This is a great quote. It is extremly ture. It means that you shoud just focus on what is going on not what lies ahead.
My favorite Martin Luther King Jr quote is " Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." I love this quote because its true. When I or anbody else feels down, we can't keep thinking about negatives because thinking of that "darkness" won't help. We must think of happy things, " light" to help us. Also whenever your mad at someone you have to not throw hate back in their face . You can stand up for yourself, but thats different. Thats why I like this quote.
i think this is sooooo true! Great choice Rach! Just like you said if your in an arguement you cant hate right back at them. You must show them you care, or else they wont forgive you.
i also love this quote. I think it really speaks to me. Great choice i was going to do this one. Yet again I love almost all of them.
i think you are one hundred percent right about the way that you looked at this quote. also the quote is right too you cant push away 'darkness' by adding more you have to be positive and move on to push it away.
YOU STOLE MINE!!!!!
Great job on the quote and response Rachel. I really enjoy the way you stated your words. You are also very right that you always have think of the "light" side of things and make the best of every situation.
Good job rachel long description and nice connection to the world.
My favortie quote from Martin Luther King is "Take the frist step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the frist step." That is my favortie becuase it saying that don't have to look forward just take your frist step. Don't always worry what comes next, just now. That is why this my favortie quote from Marthen Luther King, Hadlebury
