Human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability. It comes through the tireless efforts and persistent work of those willing to be co-workers with God, and without this hard word time itself becomes an ally of the forces of social stagnation. We must use time creatively, and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.
~Martin Luther King, Jr., Letter From Birmingham Jail (April 16, 1963)
We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love. And when we do that, we will make of this old world a new world, for love is the only way.
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know about Plato and Aristotle to serve. You don’t have to know Einstein’s theory of relativity to serve. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love. And you can be that servant.
~Martin Luther King Jr.
