What MLK quotations would YOU have included in the new memorial?

Below are photographs of all the quotes (and paraphrases–see the controversy about that by clicking here) from the new Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial.

Are these the quotes you would have used if you were the memorial designer?

Follow this link to some of Kng’s most memorable speeches and letters.  (For my review of the new memorial and additional pictures, click here.)

Starting with the south wall of quotes, moving south to the end of the wall

The northern wall, moving north

The paraphrased quotes on the memorial’s “Stone of Hope”

Contribute  your quote selections in the comment section below and include the context of the quote and why you think it should have been included.
