Here are some of my favorite quotes from the good Doctor:
‘Love’ is a central theme of his. For the many of you jaded cynics out there, I refer you to quote number 5.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

“A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.”

“Ten thousand fools proclaim themselves into obscurity, while one wise man forgets himself into immortality.”

“A lie cannot live.”

“Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

“Ten thousand fools proclaim themselves into obscurity, while one wise man forgets himself into immortality.”

“I am not interested in power for power’s sake, but I’m interested in power that is moral, that is right and that is good.”

“Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better.”
