Shopkeeper sweeping in Old City, Jerusalem

“Even if it’s called your lot to be a street sweeper, go out and sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures, sweep streets like Handel and Beethoven composed music, sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry.  Sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will have to pause and say, “Here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well.”
— Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Thank you, thank you. To my mind, this speech equals the “I Have A Dream” speech in importance. The dream speech is about the vision. This speech is about how to get there.
