We owe this holiday to the great Martin Luther King Jr in honor of his birthday. He was an amazing man of great heart and commitment for the cause of justice and selfless service to others. As a tribute to him, here are some of his most inspiring quotes.

“The art of acceptance is the art of making someone who has just done
you a small favor wish that he might have done you a greater one.

“The past is prophetic in that it asserts loudly that wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows.”

“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.”

“There is nothing more tragic than to find an individual bogged down in the length of life, devoid of breadth.”
 
“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.”

Peace & Blessings!
