Oh, the wonderful world of dreaming! When I was a child, just like most other kids I assume, I often dreamt that I could fly. Not always to other countries and fancy places, but to places to which I was too lazy to walk. I had dreams of being invisible and possessing superpower to leap over tall buildings and fall without dying just like the “Six Million Dollar Man.” Does anybody else even remember him?
These days I don’t think much about superpowers. I would probably waste them on mundane things like cooking and housecleaning.
Today though, I want to focus on someone who didn’t rely on superpowers to get things done. He simply used his words and a dream to inspire people and started a civil rights movement that has lasted generations. In honor of Martin Luther King Jr, I want to share some powerful quotes from the man himself.
Quotes of Martin Luther King Jr:
“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 have decided to stick to love…Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men were created equal.”
