Martin Luther King, Jr. ~ Remembered

Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.

Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better

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.

We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now.
 
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
 
We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.
 
We must concentrate not merely on the negative expulsion of war but the positive affirmation of peace.

There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love.

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.

I submit to you that if a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.

I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.

Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.

Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.
