Here are a couple of quotes from this great man.

"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."


"Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true."

This site has the text and audio of a few of MLK's most famous speeches, along with a lot of other noteworthy 20th century oratory.

During my Public Speaking class in college, or whatever they called it, our instructor had us watch a video of MLK giving his I Have A Dream speech. I can still feel what a moving oratory that was. Not only could he speak in a manner that inspired millions to take to the streets, he took to the streets to lead them. He truly was a great man, another struck down too soon and sorely missed in the world today.

"And then I got to Memphis. And some began to say the threats, or talk about the threats that were out. What would happen to me from some of our sick white brothers?
Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn't matter with me now. Because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land. And I'm happy, tonight. I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord"
