Years ago after hearing one of his speeches I bought a book called The Words of Martin Luther King Jr. So today I preemptively include a few pieces here that I always thought related to the artist's struggle. Surely our struggle is a privileged one but inspiring words are inspiring words and feeling a little less lonely in your journey is always helpful.
“Our hope for creative living in this world house that we have inherited lies on our ability to reestablish the moral ends of our lives in personal character and social justice. Without the spiritual and moral reawakening we shall destroy ourselves in the misuse of our own instruments.”
"One of the most agonizing problems within our human existence is that few, if any, of us live to see our fondest hopes fulfilled. The hopes of our childhood and the promises of our mature years are unfinished symphonies."
"We must accept finite disappointment, we must never lose infinite hope."
and lastly, my favorite…
"Love is the only force capable of turning an enemy into a friend."
