We remember Dr. King with some of his quotes:
“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?”
“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. 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.”
“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”
“Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering and struggle and the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.”
“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
