Quote of The Week by Martin Luther King Jr!

Today the world remembers and honors the man, the reverend, the civil rights leader and the humanitarian Martin Luther King Jr. Read on to see a compilation of our favorite quotes from Martin Luther King Jr, from his popular quotes on racial equality to quotes on love, faith, and helping others...

On Equality:
"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality."

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

On Love:
"I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant."

"I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear."

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."

"Man must evolve from all human conflict to a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love."

On Faith:
"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

On Compassion and Helping Others:
"An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity."

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'"

"The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: 'If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?' But... the good Samaritan reversed the question: 'If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?'"
