Martin Luther King on knowing thyself

Number one in your life’s blueprint
should be
a deep belief in your own dignity,
your own worth,
and your own somebodiness.

Don’t allow anybody to make you feel
that you are nobody.
Always feel that you count.
Always feel that you have worth,
and always feel that your life
has ultimate significance.

– Martin Luther King1
