Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
…And I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the promised land. I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land. So I’m happy tonight I’m not worried about anything. I’m not fearing any man.
Speech in Memphis, April 3, 1968, the day before King was assassinated
We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
Letter from Birmingham Jail, April 16, 1963

Strength to Love, 1963
