Martin Luther King, Jr. – Quotes

God, Freedom, & Everything USA                                                                                                                                                                                 More:

We must accept infinite disappointment but never lose infinite hope.

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

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

Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

The time is always right to do what is right.



  1. Growing up I was taught to be silent,I taught not to speak when am not asked to. I was told not to do many things and at that time it felt right. Now, it doesn’t feel right anymore. Am not silent anymore, am doing right by me now, am simply living as God wants me to. Thank you for sharing this.
