As one of the most influential voices in the civil rights movement, Martin Luther King Jr. helped change the course of history.
Here are a few inspirational quotes from King himself on leadership and the importance of leading with purpose.
1. “Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.”
2. “We are not makers of history. We are made by history.”
3. “If a man has not discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.”
4. “Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?”
5. “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”
