Remembering Malcolm X

TODAY MARKS 52 years since the assassination of Malcolm X in New York City.

The legendary human rights activist inspired the world and on this anniversary, we've listed our favourite inspiring quotes that still ring true today.

1.ON EDUCATION

"Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today."

2.ON TRUTH

“I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I'm a human being, first and foremost, and as such I'm for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.”

3.ON SELF-WORTH

“We cannot think of being acceptable to others until we have first proven acceptable to ourselves.”

4.ON SUCCESS

“If you have no critics you'll likely have no success. ”

5.ON POSITIVITY

“We need more light about each other. Light creates understanding, understanding creates love, love creates patience, and patience creates unity.”

6.ON EQUALITY

“I believe in recognising every human being as a human being--neither white, black, brown, or red; and when you are dealing with humanity as a family there's no question of integration or intermarriage. It's just one human being marrying another human being or one human being living around and with another human being.”

7.ON FREEDOM

“Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you're a man, you take it.”

8.ON UNDERSTANDING

“One day, may we all meet together in the light of understanding.”
