It goes without saying that Martin Luther King, Jr. was an incredible leader. In a sense you could also say that Martin Luther King was a designer of sorts in the art of language. He was able to communicate moving ideas in a clear manner, and convey ideas that inspired and galvanized the civil rights movement.
We wanted to take a moment to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. by showcasing some of his thoughts on creativity and leadership.
“Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better.”
“Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.”
“A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.”
“Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted.”
