De 20 mooiste quotes van Martin Luther King

In de Bedrock-serie ‘De mooiste quotes van…’ delen we regelmatig inspirerende citaten van wijze mensen. Eerder kwamen onder andere Eckhart Tolle en Deepak Chopra al aan bod; vandaag is dominee Martin Luther King ‘aan het woord’. Hij schreef dan wel geen boeken over spiritualiteit en mindfulness, maar heeft een enorme positieve invloed gehad op de burgerrechtenbeweging – en niet alleen met zijn ‘I have a dream’-speech.
