Lots of the values and interactions we now take for granted were catalyzed by the activism of MLK and those who aligned with him. I, for one, am very grateful.
Some of his quotes that spark to me
'Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.... Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.' –Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community
“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.” –Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech
“Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.” –Strength to Love
“The good neighbor looks beyond the external accidents and discerns those inner qualities that make all men human and, therefore, brothers." –Strength to Love
"Faith is taking the first step, even when you don't see the whole staircase."
