Celebrating Dr. King’s Legacy

January 20th, 2014

Fifty years have passed from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic “I Have a Dream” speech. As we celebrate this holiday of remembrance, here are a few of his words that bear reflection no matter where you may find yourself on this day.

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

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, “What are you doing for others?”

“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in times of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

“Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle.”

“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.”
