Words to Live by in 2021: The Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“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 WILL NOT BE INTIMIDATED, I WILL NOT BE HARASSED. I WILL NOT BE SILENT, AND I WILL BE HEARD.”

“LEADERSHIP NEVER ASCENDS FROM THE PEW TO THE PULPIT, BUT INVARIABLY DESCENDS FROM THE PULPIT TO THE PEW.”

“NEVER, NEVER BE AFRAID TO DO WHAT’S RIGHT, ESPECIALLY IF THE WELL-BEING OF A PERSON OR ANIMAL IS AT STAKE. SOCIETY’S PUNISHMENTS ARE SMALL COMPARED TO THE WOUNDS WE INFLICT ON OUR SOUL WHEN WE LOOK THE OTHER WAY.”

“NOTHING IN ALL THE WORLD IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN SINCERE IGNORANCE AND CONSCIENTIOUS STUPIDITY.”

“CREATIVE POWER CAN PULL DOWN MOUNTAINS OF EVIL AND LEVEL HILLTOPS OF INJUSTICE.”

“I SUBMIT TO YOU THAT IF A MAN HASN’T DISCOVERED SOMETHING HE WILL DIE FOR, HE ISN’T FIT TO LIVE.”

“ALL PROGRESS IS PRECARIOUS, AND THE SOLUTION OF ONE PROBLEM BRINGS US FACE TO FACE WITH ANOTHER PROBLEM.”

“CHANGE DOES NOT ROLL IN ON THE WHEELS OF INEVITABILITY, BUT COMES THROUGH CONTINUOUS STRUGGLE.”

“ONE HAS A MORAL RESPONSIBILITY TO DISOBEY UNJUST LAWS.

“THE ULTIMATE TRAGEDY IS NOT THE OPPRESSION AND CRUELTY BY THE BAD PEOPLE BUT THE SILENCE OVER THAT BY THE GOOD PEOPLE.”

“GREATNESS IS DETERMINED BY SERVICE.”

“FAITH IS TAKING THE FIRST STEP EVEN WHEN YOU CAN’T SEE THE WHOLE STAIRCASE.”
