Dr. Martin Luther King Day

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday, I would like to share some MLK quotes. Please feel free to post your favorite MLK quote.



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.

Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.


We must come to see that peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal. We must pursue peaceful ends through peaceful means.


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.


Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.


We are not makers of history. We are made by history.
The choice is not between violence and nonviolence but between nonviolence and nonexistence.


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.


 
My Favorite MLK Quote: Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.

Dr. King truly did have many inspirational quotes. I love the uplifting sections of his "I Have a Dream" speech. I just hope and pray that his legacy continues in us and future generations.

I hope his legacy continues as well. It seems that each year, the importance of his day is watered down to a day off of work/school. I think that we should all remember and cherish his legacy more.
