Martin Luther King, one man who gave dreams to millions of people. Because this man lived many men and women are celebrating their lives. Some people are just like blessing to the entire humanity and he was one of them.
Today, we are left with the persuasiveness of his words which are still very relevant and continue to guide us. Here are 15 inspiring lines by MLK.
“Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.”
“Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope.”
“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.”
“Only in the darkness can you see the stars.”
“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friends.”
“People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don’t know each other; they don’t know each other because they have not communicated with each other.”
“Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education.”
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
“A man who won’t die for something is not fit to live.”
“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”
And finally, the one which teach us to keep moving forward no matter what——
“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.”
