A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on divinity, life, mercy, spirit, and weakness

The spirit of Lincoln still lives; that spirit born of the teachings of the Nazarene, who promised mercy to the merciful, who lifted the lowly, strengthened the weak, ate with publicans, and made the captives free. In the light of this divine example, the doctrines of demagogues shiver in their chaff.

Martin Luther King Jr (1929 - 1968)
