Martin Luther King Jr Day

Today is Martin Luther King Jr Day. To celebrate this icon I decided to post some of his quotes.

1. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

2. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

3. The time is always right to do what is right.

4. A riot is the language of the unheard.

5. In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies. Our friends’ silence ends.

6. Free at last, free at last, Thank God Almighty we are free at last.

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

8. Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’

9. We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.

10. 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.
