What MLK Taught Us


“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'” 

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

"No one really knows why they are alive until they know what they'd die for."

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

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

"Forgiveness is not an occasional act; it is a constant attitude."

"There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe nor politic nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him it 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."
