Timeless truths from Martin Luther King, Jr.
On repentance: “We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.”
On character: “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
On courage: “We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.”
On hope: “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”
