Martin Luther King – ‘Single garment of destiny’

“The time has come for an all-out world war against poverty. The rich nations must use their vast resources of wealth to develop the underdeveloped, school the unschooled, and feed the unfed. ……

In the final analysis, the rich must not ignore the poor because both rich and poor are tied in a single garment of destiny.

 All life is interrelated, and all men are interdependent. The agony of the poor diminishes the rich, and the salvation of the poor enlarges the rich.”

Dr. Martin Luther King Nobel Lecture (Nobel Prize in Peace), December 11, 1964 Auditorium of the University of Oslo.
