This week begins with MLK Day. In celebration of his life (he was born on 15th January), you'll find below just a few of the quotes attributed to him. Long after his death, Martin Luther King is still a memorable voice of wisdom...

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

"Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality."

"Hatred paralyses life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it."

"Put yourself in a state of mind where you say to yourself, "Here is an opportunity for me to celebrate like never before, my own power, my own ability to get myself to do whatever is necessary.""

- Martin Luther King (15 Jan 1929 - 4 April 1968)
