I have a lot of favorite MLK quotes. I think this one's my favorite:
Here are some others:
I have decided to love. If you are seeking the highest good, I think you can find it through love. And the beautiful thing is that we are moving against wrong when we do it, because John was right, God is love. He who hates does not know God, but he who has love has the key that unlocks the door to the meaning of ultimate reality.
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state.
I submit to you that if a man hasn't discovered something he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
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.
Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time; the need for mankind to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to oppression and violence. Mankind must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
Let no man pull you low enough to hate him.
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.
Happy MLK Day, everyone.
