January is the month we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His life and his words continue to inspire us every day. Enjoy some of my favorite quotes of Dr. King below, with some of my own photos.

*********************************

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. “

“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. “

************************************

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”
