My favorite King Quotes

posted by Robert Gelinas

Here are two of my favorite Martin Luther King Jr. quotes:

martin-luther-king2.jpg

“I choose to identify with the underprivileged, I choose to identify with the poor.  I choose to give my life to the hungry.  I choose to give my life for those who have been left out of the sunlight of opportunity.”  August 28, 1966

“Power at it’s best is love implementing the demands of justice and justice at its best is love correcting everything that stands against love.”  Aug. 16, 1967

What about you?  What are your favorite King quotes?

As a teacher, I subscribe to his belief on educating the whole of a child…
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.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

“We are now faced with the fact, my friends, that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there is such a thing as being too late. Procrastination is still the thief of time. Life often leaves us standing bare, naked, and dejected with a lost opportunity. The tide in the affairs of men does not remain at flood — it ebbs. We may cry out desperately for time to pause in her passage, but time is adamant to every plea and rushes on. Over the bleached bones and jumbled residues of numerous civilizations are written the pathetic words, “Too late.”

The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must
be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an
irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.
Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength to Love, 1963.

Now, I say to you today my friends, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. 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-
This is one of my favorite quotes especially having been born in Oklahoma in the 50′s and 60′s with seperate schools, movies, restrooms, water fountains, etc. Dr. King’s life work was the catalyst in the positive changes that are still a work in progress today.

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
