Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

"…If an individual at 30 years-old hears some great truth, some great principle, some great ideal standing at the doorsteps of his life, and he refuses to take a stand because he’s afraid that his hand will be burned, afraid that he will lose a job, or afraid that he will be killed and he wants to live longer…he may live until he’s 80, but he’s just as dead at 30 as he is at 80…” ---In 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. shared this with a crowd of about 2,400 at Howard University during The Fifth Annual Gandhi Memorial Lecture.
