A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on agreement, college, grace, heart, love, needs, physics, soul, and theory

Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You don't have to know about Plato and Aristotle . . . (or) Einstein's Theory of Relativity. . . (or) the Second Theory of Thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.
