Be the Peace ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

January 15, 1929 – April 04, 1968
 “It does not matter how long you live, but how well you do it,” is just one quote attributed to the man above and because today is his holiday, I am dedicating this post to his quotes.

“Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.”

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”

“Only in the darkness can you see the stars.”

“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

“Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.”

“Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a constant attitude.”

“No person has the right to rain on your dreams.”

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

“It is cheerful to God when you rejoice or laugh from the bottom of your heart.”

“If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way”

“Be The Peace You Wish To See In The World!”
Shine On!

  1. Because of the way I m feeling now, I will go with, ”
    Only in the darkness can you see the stars.”
    However, I m working on developing a life full of forgiveness. This is based on my reading The Little Soul and the Sun. I think it will change my life!
    Thank you for the beautiful quotes of one of my heroes. They all move me to be a better, more contributing human being.

  2. “Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” I like this one the best, but they’re all great!
