martin luther king jr. quotes

Best known as a leader of the Civil Rights Movement and his pro-peace views, Martin Luther King Jr. will always be remembered as an eloquent and well-spoken man (arguably one of the most influential in American history).

In recognition of MLK Jr. Day, which was celebrated January 16 across America, here are 20 inspiring Martin Luther King Jr. quotes:

  • “To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.”
  • “Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a constant attitude.”
  • “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole stair case.”
  • “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
  • “To serve. You only need a heart full of grace and a soul generated by love.”
  • “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
  • “Use me, God. Show me how to take who I am, who I want to be, and what I can do, and use it for a purpose greater than myself.”
  • “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
  • “If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.”
  • “If you can’t fly, run; if you can’t run, walk; if you can’t walk, crawl; but by all means keep moving.”
  • “The time is always right to do what is right.”
  • “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
  • “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.”
  • “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”
  • “The surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.”
  • “You don’t have to see the whole staircase; just take the first step.”
  • “I have learned this art: When I have nothing more to say, I stop talking.”
  • “Education without morals is like a ship without a compass, merely wandering nowhere.”
  • “Love is the most durable power in the world.”
  • “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”
