Dr Martin Luther King Jr

Dr Martin Luther King Jr is Celebrated today in the US with a  National Holiday.

I received  these two quotes in my email from Seth Godin’s blog this morning…

They could have been written today.

… about recovery?

“Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless his  back is bent.”

 Martin Luther King, Jr.

…on human liberation

“On some positions, Cowardice asks the question, “Is it safe?” Expediency asks the question, “Is it politic?” And Vanity comes along and asks the question, “Is it popular?”

But Conscience asks the question “Is it right?” And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must do it because Conscience tells him it is right.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

at “the greatest demonstration for human freedom in the history of our nation”
