Powerful Words . . .

. . . for an Inauguration Day
“Give us the ballot and we will no longer have to worry the federal government about our basic rights.” —Lincoln Memorial, 1957

“Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verbs agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love.”

“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.”

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.” —Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech, Dec. 10, 1964  

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

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”

—The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968) MLK Photo Gallery Barack Obama Photo Gallery
