    The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gestures and shouts to his congregation in Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Ga., on April 30, 1967 as he urges America to repent and abandon what he called its "tragic, reckless adventure in Vietnam." Dr. King is often remembered for his stirring quotes.

Martin Luther King Jr. conveyed some incredibly moving ideas and left us with a few extraordinary quotations during the course of his life and career.Below are my three favorites.

"If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward."

"As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation -- either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course."

"Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree."
