Martin Luther King, Jr. 1929-1968

"Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal."

“All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.”

“Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

“The art of acceptance is the art of making someone who has just done you a small favor wish that he might have done you a greater one.”

“Wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows.”

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

“Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.”
