Idea Starters

With tremendous respect and humble adoration the quotes for today are excerpts from one of the most memorable speeches in American history; given by one of the country’s most treasured leaders; on the 50th anniversary of sharing his “dream” with us…

From the “Dream” of Martin Luther King, Jr. …

“Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.”

Leadership is power of character, not power of force. CSW


“And they [white people] have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone.”

Freedom is not a reality, nor can it be enjoyed in anyone within freedom’s reach is till yoked. CSW


“No, no, we are not satisfied and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.”

Leadership is not, and dare not be complacent with winning battles until the entire war is won. CSW


“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.”

The best leadership is of the utmost integrity and the highest Character. CSW


“…will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, ‘Free at last, free at least. Thank God Almighty, we are free at last’”
