17 Other Amazing Martin Luther King Jr. Quotes Besides The “I Have A Dream” Speech

Today, we saw President Barack Obama sworn-in for his second term, and it made me think back to that common theme of “progress” that we shared as a nation when we saw him sworn-in four years ago as the first black President of the United States. The inauguration also happened to fall on MLK day, which is extra special because of just how much Dr. King fought to make days like today a reality.

We have come a long way as a country, and we still have a ways to go (anyone with a Facebook profile during the 2012 election will agree). What is most important is that we are making “progress.” While many know Dr. King for his famous “I have a dream” speech, his legacy included so many other incredible quotes – including how MLK wanted to be remembered.

If any of you are around when I have to meet my day, I don’t want a long funeral. And if you get somebody to deliver the eulogy, tell them not to talk too long. Every now and then I wonder what I want them to say…I’d like somebody to mention that day, that Martin Luther King, Jr., tried to give his life serving others. I’d like for somebody to say that day, that Martin Luther King, Jr., tried to love somebody. I want you to say that day, that I tried to be right on the war question. I want you to be able to say that day that I did try to feed the hungry. I want you to be able to say that day that I did try in my life to clothe those who were naked. I want you to say, on that day, that I did try, in my life, to visit those who were in prison. I want you to say that I tried to love and serve humanity.

Thanks to Buzzfeed, we’ve got 17 amazing MLK quotes for you that aren’t heard that often, but speak volumes on Martin Luther King, Jr. and his vision for us to live in a world of peace, love, harmony, and equality.
