Let freedom ring

I wanted to share some great quotes of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; Baptist minister, Civil Right leader, orator, pacifist, Nobel Peace prize winner.

"I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant."

"Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don't have to know about Plato and Aristotle to serve. You don't have to know Einstein's theory of relativity to serve. You don't have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love. And you can be that servant."

"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, keep moving."

"Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step."

"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."

"In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."

It would be interesting to hear his thoughts about what is going today in our country. To bad his life was cut short to soon.
