Quote #859 - #KeepMoving #MLKDay #MLKQuotes

21 Jan, 2019

Keep Moving

"I often feel like saying, when I hear the question 'People aren't ready,' that it's like telling a person who is trying to swim, 'Don't jump into that water until you learn how to swim.' When actually you will never learn to swim until you jump in the water."

Martin Luther King, Jr.

"If you can't fly, then run.
If you can't run, then walk.
If you can't walk, then crawl.
But whatever you do, keep moving.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

We gotta keep moving.
You know?
Otherwise we'll be here.
And we can't stay here!

We gotta keep moving.
Everyone I know is feeling it--
personally, professionally,
and, of course, politically.

We gotta keep moving,
keep crawling walking running flying
learning how to swim
to crawl to walk to run
to fly ...

We gotta keep moving--
that's the only way to have progress,

Jump in.
We have to be ready.
There is no other way.
We've got to move.
We've gotta keep moving.
It's the only way to get somewhere else,
and we've gotta get somewhere else!
