Happy Birthday Dr. King!

“We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.”
Speech in St. Louis, Missouri, March 22, 1964

“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. The true neighbor will risk his position, his prestige and even his life for the welfare of others.”
— Strength to Love (1963)

I LOVE this picture of Dr. King looking cool as a fan!
President Johnson signs the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with Martin Luther King. Lol at some of the facial expressions

 Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.

“If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.”

“I submit to you that if a man hasn’t discovered something he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.”

“Ten thousand fools proclaim themselves into obscurity, while one wise man forgets himself into immortality.”

I loved these quotes from Dr. King
