AUTHOR: Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929–68)
QUOTATION: Let us therefore continue our triumphal march to the realization of the American dream…. for all of us today, the battle is in our hands…. The road ahead is not altogether a smooth one. There are no broad highways that lead us easily and inevitably to quick solutions…. We are still in for the season of suffering…. How long? Not long. Because no lie can live forever…. our God is marching on.
