In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we have compiled a list of a few of his quotations that can apply to dogs and their owners as well.

On the unconditional love of dogs:

“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”

"Let no man pull you low enough to hate him."

“Occasionally in life there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meanings can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart.”

On animal rights:

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

"A right delayed is a right denied. That old law about 'an eye for an eye' leaves everybody blind. The time is always right to do the right thing."

“Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.”

On rescue dogs and mutts:

“Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted.”

On pet illness and loss:

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

“The quality, not the longevity, of one's life is what is important.”
