As a Christian, I'm inspired by Martin Luther King, Jr's radical devotion to Jesus. Yet no matter one's religious belief/disbelief, King's message of love and sacrifice are admirable. In honor of MLK Day, here are a few quotes from Dr. King.

- Joel

"Faith is taking the first step even when you can't see the whole staircase.”

“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.”

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”

"Let us develop a kind of dangerous unselfishness."
