Quotes + Thoughts | Dr. King on self-conviction

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Google-Dr.-King

Lest you’ve forgotten, yesterday was Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, although his real birthday was January 15. It’s no accident that President Obama’s inauguration for this second term as President coincides with this historic day. It reminds us just how far the Civil Rights Movement has advanced, although their fight is far from over. Injustice and discrimination based on color, gender, creed, race, or sexual orientation, is still with us today.

But enough about that, as I just wanted to highlight some of Dr. King’s quotes. There are of course many, from his most famous “I have a dream…” to lesser known ones. Personally, I prefer short and sweet ones as they are easier to remember and are more impactful.

I hope you find my choice inspiring. I’ve also included the yesterday’s Google header which was designed specifically for the day. Enjoy!
