I am a Muslim …….

 
 
 
 

I am a Muslim, because it’s a religion that teaches you an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. It teaches you to respect everybody, and treat everybody right. But it also teaches you if someone steps on your toe, chop off their foot. And I carry my religious axe with me all the time.

Malcolm X, “Homecoming” speech, 29 Nov. 1964, in ¡By any means, p. 14 0

“A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything.”


“We are nonviolent with people who are nonviolent with us.”

“Without education, you’re not going anywhere in this world.”

“Stumbling is not falling.”


“There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance next time.”

“I for one believe that if you give people a thorough understanding of what confronts them and the basic causes that produce it, they’ll create their own program, and when the people create a program, you get action.”

“If you’re not ready to die for it, put the word ‘freedom’ out of your vocabulary.”

 

 

“I believe that there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those that do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the systems of exploitation.
