My Favorite Quotes by Dr. King | Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Reflections

January 21, 2019

Filed in: Personal

On this 33rd Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I can’t help but reflect on the greatness that was in Dr. King.  His strength, courage and wisdom during a time that was immensely unjust is more than admirable.  I along with millions of others pay homage to him to day for his service & the ultimate sacrifice he & his family paid.


Today, I’m sharing with you a few of my favorite quotes from Dr. King.  My hope is that they inspire you to seek & do what is just and right, for yourself as well as your neighbor.  We need a lot more of that in this world today.


“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”


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


“We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.”


“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”


“Not everyone can be famous but everybody can be great because greatness is determined by service.  You only need a heart full of grace and a soul generated by love.”


“We must learn to live together as brothers or we will perish together as fools”



Happy Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

  1. Nicole did our family photos, and not only did she make it fun for us, she make us so comfortable we forgot we was doing a family shoot. She was able to capture moments that was so special to us. She is a wonderful photographer and I will be using her again.

    Thank you Ashley you’re the best
