Now I think with my own mind, sir!” — Malcolm X quotes “I don't mean go out and get violent; but at the same time you should never be nonviolent unless you run into some nonviolence. I'm nonviolent with those who are nonviolent with me. But when you drop that violence on me, then you've made me go insane, and I'm not responsible for what I do.” — Malcolm X quotes “I don't favor violence. If we could bring about recognition and respect of our people by peaceful means, well and good. Everybody would like to reach his objectives peacefully. But I'm also a realist. The only people in this country who are asked to be nonviolent are black people.” — Malcolm X quotes “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.” — Malcolm X quotes “I believe in the brotherhood of man, all men, but I don't believe in brotherhood with anybody who doesn't want brotherhood with me. I believe in treating people right, but I'm not going to waste my time trying to treat somebody right who doesn't know how to return the treatment.” — Malcolm X quotes “I believe in human rights for everyone, and none of us is qualified to judge each other and that none of us should therefore have that authority.” — Malcolm X quotes “I believe in a religion that believes in freedom.

I don't believe in any form of discrimination or segregation.” — Malcolm X quotes “I am neither a fanatic nor a dreamer. I am a black man who loves peace, and justice, and loves his people.” — Malcolm X quotes “I am and always will be a Muslim. My religion is Islam.” — Malcolm X quotes “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 quotes “I always knew it would end like this.” — Malcolm X quotes “How can you thank a man for giving you what's already yours? How then can you thank him for giving you only part of what is yours?” — Malcolm X quotes “History is a people's memory, and without a memory, man is demoted to the lower animals.” — Malcolm X quotes “Here I am, back in Mecca. I am still traveling, trying to broaden my mind, for I've seen too much of the damage narrow-mindedness can make of things, and when I return home to America, I will devote what energies I have to repairing the damage.” — Malcolm X quotes “Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.” — Malcolm X quotes “Early in life I had learned that if you want something, you had better make some noise.” — Malcolm X quotes “Dr. King wants the same thing I want. Freedom.” — Malcolm X quotes “Don’t be in a hurry to condemn because he doesn’t do what you do or think as you think or as fast. There was a time when you didn’t know what you know today.” — Malcolm X quotes “Concerning nonviolence, it is criminal to teach a man not to defend himself when he is the constant victim of brutal attacks.”— Malcolm X quotes “Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery.”  — Malcolm X quotes “Anytime you see someone more successful than you are, they are doing something you aren't.” — Malcolm X quotes “An integrated cup of coffee isn't sufficient pay for four hundred years of slave labor.” — Malcolm X quotes “All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds.” — Malcolm X quotes “A race of people is like an individual man; until it uses its own talent, takes pride in its own history, expresses its own culture, affirms its own selfhood, it can never fulfill itself.” — Malcolm X quotes “A new world order is in the making, and it is up to us to prepare ourselves that we may take our rightful place in it.” — Malcolm X quotes “A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything.”— Malcolm X quotes “A ballot is like a bullet. You don't throw your ballots until you see a target, and if that target is not in reach, keep your ballot in your pocket.” — Malcolm X quotes
