Famous quotes containing the words magnus and/or king:

    Mediocrity in politics is not to be despised. Greatness is not needed.
    —Hans Magnus Enzensberger (b. 1929)

    I don’t think Dr. King helped racial harmony, I think he helped racial justice. What I profess to do is help the oppressed and if I cause a load of discomfort in the white community and the black community, that in my opinion means I’m being effective, because I’m not trying to make them comfortable. The job of an activist is to make people tense and cause social change.
    Al, Reverend Sharpton (b. 1954)
