(Repost) be the best at whatever you are

by nomeatbarefeet

This post, from The Better Man Project, contains a snippet from a speech given by Martin Luther King Jr six months before his assassination. It is a moving and poignant reminder that while we may not be able to shape our lot in life, we are able to shape our reaction.

Be the best at whatever you happen to be and no one can speak less of you.

Day (396) – Emerson.
