Learning Center Experience
This month, as we recognize Martin Luther King Jr. and his
principles of nonviolence, we invite you read some select quotes from his book Stride Toward Freedom: The Montgomery Story,
published in 1958. The selected quotes are from the chapter
titled “Pilgrimage to Nonviolence.” The
chapter is based around his exploration of various philosophies, including the
nonviolence philosophy of Gandhi and how he came to believe in the principles
of nonviolence. As we approach Martin Luther King Day we invite students or
those interested in public
administration or public service to read these quotes and explore the Center for Public
Service this month to learn more about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his
principles of nonviolence.
can never give absolute moral justification to destructive means, because in
the final analysis the end is preexistent in the mean.”
“To deprive man of freedom is to relegate him the status of
a thing, rather than elevate him to the status of a person.”
“As I delve deeper
into the philosophy of Gandhi my skepticism concerning the power of love
gradually diminished, and I came to see for the first time its potency in the
area of social reform.”
“The phrase ‘passive resistance’ often gives the false
impression that this is a sort of ‘do-nothing method’ in which the resister
quietly and passively accepts evil. But nothing is further from the truth. For
while the nonviolent resister is passive in the sense that he is not physically
aggressive toward his opponent, his mind and emotions are always active,
constantly seeking to persuade his opponent that he is wrong.”
“A second basic fact that characterizes nonviolence is that
it does not seek to defeat or humiliate the opponent, but to win his friendship
“The aftermath of nonviolence is the creation of the beloved
community, while the aftermath of the violence is tragic bitterness.”
“…this [nonviolent resistance] method is that the attack is
directed against forces of evil rather than against persons who happen to be
doing the evil.”
“At the center of
nonviolence stands the principle of love. “
“…the best way to assure oneself that Love is disinterested
is to have love for the enemy-neighbor from whom you can expect no good in
return, but only hostility and persecution.”
“I can only close the gap in broken community by meeting
hate with love.”
“When I am commanded to love, I am commanded to restore
community, to resist injustice, and to meet the needs of my brothers.”
“A sixth basic fact about nonviolent resistance is that it
is based on the conviction that the universe is on the side of justice.”
