Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – Some of His ‪Most Famous and Inspiring Quotes…‬

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a social activist and Baptist minister who played a key role in the American civil rights movement from the mid-1950s until his assassination in 1968.

Dr. King sought equality and human rights for African Americans, the economically disadvantaged and all victims of injustice through peaceful, non-violent protest. He was the driving force behind watershed events such as the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the 1963 March on Washington, which helped bring about such landmark legislation as the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act.

Dr. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 and is remembered each year on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a U.S. federal holiday since 1986.

Below are some of Dr. King’s most famous and inspiring quotes:

“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

“Forgiveness is not an occasional act. It is a permanent attitude.”

“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?”

“Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness.”

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

“We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”

“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.”

“Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle.”

“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”

“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”

“Let no man pull you so low as to hate him.”

“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.”

Do unto Others…

I’m sure all of us are very familiar with the Golden Rule:

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”

But how often do we follow that sage advice?

When someone treats us badly, our first line of defense is usually to retaliate.

What happened to the Golden rule?

It seems so elementary, so simplistic to forgive, forget, and move on. But we rarely do.

Why is it easier to hold a grudge than to forgive?

God will not judge us on how others treated us… but He will judge us on how we treated others.

“Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.”

~Matthew 7:12 (KJV)


“And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.”

~Luke 6:31 (KJV)


…think on these things and to God be the glory!
