MLKAPVDecision
A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus. In your face, Obama! MLK.
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Trash on the Moon is a threat to cleanliness in the Amazon. APV.
The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists who are dedicated to justice, peace and brotherhood. What? The 6.5 billion bipedal apes roaming the globe are not alive? I guess China and India do so well because they are dedicated to justice and brotherhood. APV.
I submit to you that if a man hasn’t discovered something he will die for, he isn’t fit to live. Oooooh, so tempting to give in to your rhetoric… Must… retain… ability… to view life… as more… than the avoidance of death. APV.
Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men. Dude, any freshman English GA would have bled all over that. MLK. It was clever enough at the time.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. Okay, that’s gospel… Oh, no wait. Come to think of it, that’s pretty sexist, man. What’s the ultimate measure of a woman? MLK.
I have a dream. I have a dram. Tie.
All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality. I think about suicide pretty often. Not quite as much as murder though so I guess you’re right. APV. But maybe it’s time to call the cops…?
A lie cannot live. Did you know that there is no supporting evidence whatsoever outside the gospels that Jesus of Nazareth was a real person? Did you also know the gospels were written 70-200 years after Jesus was supposedly alive, at a time when the average lifespan was a lot less than 70 years? MLK. The Pepsi generation is sick of your wordy bullshit, Pond.
Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase. Eyes are useful for walking on stairs, even when you’re trapped in another bad Steven Spielberg movie. What? Seriously. Both of you. What?
Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted. Human salvation lies in the thighs of… um… MLK.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. Shhhhhhhhhhh! APV!
Let no man pull you low enough to hate him. Let no man pull you low without permission. MLK. Gay jokes…? Bloggah, pleaze!
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. Our lives are, for all purposes, over the day we substitute speech for deeds. APV. Wait, how did a serious one get in here?
Ten thousand fools proclaim themselves into obscurity, while one wise man forgets himself into immortality. Oh, boy. I remember what being that drunk is like. APV, despite the redundant drinking gag.
Winner: APV

We were all surprised but shouldn’t have been. The more you examine heroes, the more you start to despise those who imagine them.
