On this  Martin Luther King Jr. day, here are some amazing quotes from a brilliant man who indeed had a Dream he gave his all for.

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

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

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

Ten thousand fools proclaim themselves into obscurity, while one wise man forgets himself into immortality.

I submit to you that if a man hasn’t discovered something he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.

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.

Now, I say to you today my friends, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: – ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’

~ Martin Luther King, Jr
