Malcolm X Quotations

Guest Author - Danielle Hollister

  1. "When a person places the proper value on freedom, there is nothing under the sun that he will not do to acquire that freedom. Whenever you hear a man saying he wants freedom, but in the next breath he is going to tell you what he won't do to get it, or what he doesn't believe in doing in order to get it, he doesn't believe in freedom. A man who believes in freedom will do anything under the sun to acquire . . . or preserve his freedom."
    -- Malcolm X
  2. "Don't be in a hurry to condemn because he doesn't do what you do or think as you think or as fast. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today."
    -- Malcolm X
  3. "My Alma mater was books, a good library... I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity."
    -- Malcolm X

    -- Malcolm X

    -- Malcolm X
  8. "Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you're a man, you take it."
    -- Malcolm X

    -- Malcolm X
  10. "The only way we'll get freedom for ourselves is to identify ourselves with every oppressed people in the world. We are blood brothers to the people of Brazil, Venezuela, Haiti, Cuba -- yes Cuba too."
    -- Malcolm X
  11. "I believe in a religion that believes in freedom. Any time I have to accept a religion that won't let me fight a battle for my people, I say to hell with that religion."

  27. "The thing that you have to understand about those of us in the Black Muslim movement was that all of us believed 100 percent in the divinity of Elijah Muhammad. We believed in him.

And I was shocked when I found out that he himself didn't believe it."
    -- Malcolm X

    -- Malcolm X
  36. "I believe in the brotherhood of man, all men, but I don't believe in brotherhood with anybody who doesn't want brotherhood with me. I believe in treating people right, but I'm not going to waste my time trying to treat somebody right who doesn't know how to return the treatment."
