Today being Dr. King’s birthday, we will honor him with a few of his memorable quotes. Enjoy, and Happy Birthday to ya, Dr. King!
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
The time is always right to do what is right.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.
We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.
Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.
If a man has not discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.
We are not makers of history. We are made by history.
