Voice of the Day: Martin Luther King Jr.

“Truth crushed to earth will rise again. How long? Not long! Because no lie can live forever. How long? Not long! Truth forever on the scaffold, wrong forever on the throne. Yet that scaffold sways the future and behind the dim unknown standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch over [God’s] own. How long? Not long! Because the arc of the mortal universe is long but it bends toward justice.”

— Martin Luther King Jr.

I think “the arc of the mortal universe is long but it bends toward justice” is my favorite quote from MLK.
