Martin Luther King on Communication

Posted by Ellie Becker on Mon, Jan 16, 2012 @ 16:01 PM

Today, I’d like to share several favorite Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes on the subject of communication.Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial at Night

As it relates to hate:

“Men often hate each other because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they can not communicate; they can not communicate because they are separated.”

As it relates to love:

"Occasionally in life there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meanings can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart."

As it relates to character:

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."

As an inbound marketing consultant, I wonder, were he still with us now, how Dr. King would use the Internet in his efforts to bring men together in peace.
