My Favorite Quotes From MLK-Jaybeau

Martin Luther King was so ahead of his time, and truly a light and a gift that was given to us. While he was taken from us far too soon, his words and vision are timeless. His wisdom was simple, yet powerful and true. It is simply, truth.

Imagine if all of us, lived by these truths. The world can be a better place. He was right.

-We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope. 

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

-Forgiveness is not an occasional act. It is a permanent attitude.

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

-Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
