    Author: Martin Luther King, Jr.

The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict.

    Author: Martin Luther King, Jr.

The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility.

    Author: Martin Luther King, Jr.
