Words of Wisdom from Martin Luther King

from Internet:  Brainy Quote

How can we honor Martin Luther King?

Perhaps the best ways to remember and honor Martin Luther King is to select one of his most memorable quotes and then “live” it in your daily life, “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.  “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

  1. “Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.”
  2. “To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.”
  3. “Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted.”
  4. “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”
  5. “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.’”
  6. “There comes a time when silence is betrayal.”
  7. “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”
  8. “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”
  9. “We must live together as brothers or perish together as fools.”
  10. “Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”
  11. “Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a constant attitude.”
  12. “No one really knows why they are alive until they know what they’d die for.”
  13. “I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”
  14. “Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
  15. “Let no man pull you so low as to hate him.”
  16. “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.”
  17. “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”
