powerful quotes Coretta Scott King will be remembered for.

My story is a freedom song of struggle. It is about finding one’s purpose, how to overcome fear and to stand up for causes bigger than one’s self. 

The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.

Freedom and justice cannot be parceled out in pieces to suit political convenience. I don’t believe you can stand for freedom for one group of people and deny it to others. 

The failure to invest in youth reflects a lack of compassion and a colossal failure of common sense.

Struggle is a never ending process. Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation.

It is plain that we don’t care about our poor people except to exploit them as cheap labour and victimize them through excessive rents and consumer prices

Something is wrong that we have to feed so many. Why should there be poverty with all of our science and technology? There is no deficit in human resources it is a deficit in human will. 

I'm fulfilled in what I do. I never thought that a lot of money or fine clothes the finer things of life would make you happy. My concept of happiness is to be filled in a spiritual sense.
