My favorite MLK quote

It’s hard to pick just one quote from Martin Luther King, Jr. — there are so many good ones.

In honor of his birthday, many choose to serve others. And so I share this one:

“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 your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know about Plato and Aristotle to serve. You don’t have to know Einstein’s theory of relativity to serve. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

Reverend King was just 39 when he died, yet he accomplished so much because he led by example. No excuses; the time to serve is now.
