Pearls of Wisdom from Dr. Martin King; Jr.

Be the Best, Commit to Excellence!

If it falls to your lot to be a street sweeper, sweep streets like Michelangelo
painted pictures, sweep streets like Beethoven composed music ...
Sweep streets so well that all the host of heaven and earth will have to
pause and say: Here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well.

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be
undertaken with painstaking excellence.

Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that
the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.

Education Knowledge and History

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think
critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.

Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge
which is power; religion gives man wisdom which is control.

Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There
is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions.
Nothing pains some people more than having to think.

Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and
conscientious stupidity.

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social
transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling
silence of the good people.

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

The past is prophetic in that it asserts loudly that wars are poor chisels for
carving out peaceful tomorrows.

The Measure of Character...

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of
comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and
controversy.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation
where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content
of their character.

That old law about 'an eye for an eye' leaves everybody blind. The time
is always right to do the right thing.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

Life's most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?
