Quotes:

Quotes After we have read and discussed this speech, please select one quote from the speech that speaks to you. Copy the quote on this index card, and then write what that quote means and why it is important to you.

Quote Card Example:

Quote Card Example “And when you discover what you will be in your life, set out to do it as if God Almighty called you at this particular moment in history.” Dr. King’s message is clear in this speech. You need to work hard and choose wisely. You should be the best you can be in whatever you choose to do. What I have chosen is to work with young writers, to help them find a powerful voice. That voice someday may influence others, just like Dr. King’s words still do for us today.
