Last Wednesday evening, our friend Sharase DeBouse suddenly said: It’s January 15th! It’s Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday!
And sure enough it was, so right away we went hunting for a quote which we posted with the headline “Martin Luther King Day 2014“. Which it wasn’t. The celebration of his life is the third Monday in January: today. So we’ve decided to post his stunning words again, along with Sharase’s:
I have always been amazed by the incredible words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I have to tell you, listening to his speeches have kept me at times that I felt I was in my darkest hours.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
“Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.”
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
