Quote of the Day (Martin Luther King, on Why One Should ‘Make a Career of Humanity’)

“Make a career of humanity. Commit yourself to the noble struggle for equal rights. You will make a greater person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.”—Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., “Address to Youth March for Integrated Schools,” April 18, 1959, Washington, DC

(This close-up of the face of Dr. King comes from his statue in the King Memorial, which I visited and photographed yesterday here in DC. Today’s quote was inscribed on one of the walls behind the statue of Dr. King.)
