King’s Speech

Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And he’s allowed me to go up to the mountain and I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the promised land.

I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as people will get to the promised land.

So I’m happy tonight. I’m not worried about anything. I’m not fearing any man. “Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.”

(From King’s last speech, in Memphis, the night before his assassination)
