Timeless words by Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr

On the occasion of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, here are only a few of this great man’s quotes, which I find incredibly inspiring. Words to live by…

  • “The time is always right to do the right thing.”
  • “I have decided to stick to love…Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
  • “Only in the darkness can you see the stars.”
  • “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”
  • “Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.”
  • “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
  • “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
  • “Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”
  • “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”
  • “Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.”
  • “Lightning makes no sound until it strikes.”
  • “If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.”
  • “It does not matter how long you live, but how well you do it.”
