We are big believers in timing and MLK Jr. had this to say about timing, "The time is always right to do what is right."
There are so many beautiful MLK quotes that are so inspiring to us. MLK Jr. stood for excellence, freedom, equality, dreaming, self confidence and believing. If you haven't yet listened to some of MLK Jr's speeches today, we encourage you to do so.
When most people would've given up or gotten negative and down, MLK Jr. was motivated by love and a drive to make things better. He manifested a nation to be the way in which he spoke about it in his "I have a dream speech". Although we still have long strides to go today, if you compare to where we were in the 1960s, it *is* actually amazing. Sad, but amazing.
It is amazing how pertinent all of MLK's quotes still are today. A couple of favorites include,
"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere" MLK Jr and
"I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear." MLK Jr
