“I Have a Dream”

Today is the 50 year anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.  Let’s keep in mind the essence of his speech and his life.    This is a re-post of what I posted on January 21, 2013.    (Alex)


“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed:  ’We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.’”    (Martin Luther King Jr.)



“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”   (Martin Luther King Jr.)



“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.”   (Martin Luther King Jr.)



 “I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.  That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”     (Martin Luther King Jr.)



“Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve.  You don’t have to have a college degree to serve.  u don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve.  

You only need a heart full of grace.  A soul generated by love.”    (Martin Luther King Jr.)



“Life’s most urgent question is: what are you doing for others?”    (Martin Luther King Jr.)
