Martin Luther King Jr.: Favorite Quotes

A few of my favorite quotes from Martin Luther King Jr.

“Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge, which is power; religion gives man wisdom, which is control. Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values. The two are not rivals.” -Martin Luther King Jr.

“The early Christians rejoiced when they were deemed worthy to suffer for what they believed. In those days the Church was not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society.” -Martin Luther King Jr.

“The end of life is not to be happy, nor to achieve pleasure and avoid pain, but to do the will of God, come what may.” -Martin Luther King Jr.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

    Bravo to Martin, well said!
    Sadly, the thermostat he speaks of is broken, and I fear that we’ve gone back to the thermometer. Only the God of the living can fix this problem.
