“Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better.” – Martin Luther King
This is my favorite quote by Martin Luther King because of the optimism it proposes in the face of adversity. This quote reminds me to be steadfast in my determination to make the world a better place and flexible in my understanding of how I can best do that. If we are dedicated to seeing things from many points of view when faced by seemingly intractable problems we will imagine new ways of solving them.
