Following are some quotes from Dr. King:
"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."
"A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better."
"Life's most persistent and urgent question is....what are you doing for others?"
"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
"....But whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward."
"Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend."
For his efforts in leading non-violent civil rights demonstrations, Dr. King was awarded the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize. Under his leadership, much was accomplished. There is still much more to be done.
