First, for those who have never read them or who might want to reread them, here are some very powerful words -- what an orator/writer he was!

"I Have a Dream" speech:

Letter from Jail in Birmingham:

And here are a few thought-provoking quotations from the good Dr.:

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

Occasionally in life there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meanings can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart.

The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state.

If you will protest courageously, and yet with dignity and Christian love, when the history books are written in future generations, the historians will have to pause and say, “There lived a great people—a black people—who injected new meaning and dignity into the veins of civilization.”

Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see.

I want to be the white man's brother, not his brother-in-law.

Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will.

It may be true that the law cannot make a man love me, but it can keep him from lynching me, and I think that's pretty important.

There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love.
