Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes Printable (** for premium members only)
“I have a dream,” may be one of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s most famous quotes. It is from a speech he delivered on August 28, 1963 at the Lincoln Memorial. Here’s a handful of sites where you can discover more of Dr. King’s quotations.
The Atlantic: Anatomy of a Fake Quotation
This story might seem a bit off topic, but it’s a very important lesson for anyone using the Internet to source quotes. Writer and editor Megan McArdle describes how she discovered that a viral quote attributed to Dr. King was not his. The incident happened after the killing of Osama bin Laden. The fake quote was: “I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy.”
BrainyQuote: Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes
BrainyQuote is my go-to site for quotes, although I always wish their author biographies were a bit meatier. For Dr. King, they host about sixty quotes, each with the usual sharing options for Twitter and Facebook. What’s unique here is the Share as Image option, which allows you to customize a quote graphic that can be shared. Very cool.
Google Images: Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes
I’ve never featured a Google Images search before, but with the popularity of quote images, I figured this was interesting addition. Clicking on any image will give you the option of visiting the originated web page, and also display eight related images. As with any Internet search, adult supervision is prudent.
