Martin Luther King

America celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr. Day this week – Martin Luther King (MLK) was an American activist and a well know figure in the African – American civil rights movement. He gave one of the most influential and powerful speeches as an activist – “I have a dream speech”. The speech went on to become one of the most powerful speeches in the history of the world. MLK was assassinated in 1968, his words are still as powerful even after fifty years when they were first voiced.

Today’s Good Morning Sunday post features Martin Luther King, Jr.’s most powerful quotes.

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

“Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.”

“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.”

“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.”

“Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.”

“There is no gain without struggle.”

“Lightning makes no sound until it strikes.”

“If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way”

“We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”

Hi ZK, it’s been a while since I wrote something in your blog, but today I could not stop myself. For me it was and are Martin Luther King a great example of a person who fought for even equality, both for color and gender. I lift my wine glass in his honor tonight.
