Take a moment today, on Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday to remember the dream.

A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on the installment plan. -MLK

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. -MLK

Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent. -MLK

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

Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness. -MLK
