Quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr

~ Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.

~ I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

~ 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.

~ The quality, not the longevity, of one's life is what is important.

~ The time is always right to do what is right.

~ 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.

~ We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.
