A Brief Pause for Inspiration

Photo - mklAs a colleague of Nan’s I sometimes post about titleless leaders.

This week, I was acutely aware of a great titlesless leader, Martin Luther King, Jr. So, in his honor I thought I’d share a few of Martin Luther King’s inspiring quotes with you. I hope you enjoy them.

  • “Not everybody can be famous but everybody can be great, because greatness is determined by service.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • “Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr; A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things
    that matter.”
    ~ Martin Luther King, Jr; I Have a Dream: Writings and Speeches That Changed the World
  • “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 verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” ~ Marin Luther King, Jr.
