Words of Wisdom from Martin Luther King, Jr.

Happy MLK Day, ExpressIRSForms users! While a lot of you may be joining us from the comfort of a three-day weekend, the ExpressIRSForms office is up and running today to help you e-file your 1099s, W-2s, and ACA forms. So to honor the good doctor on his day, we’ve brought you some words of wisdom from him to carry you throughout your day and week.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.

When you are right, you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative.

We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable...Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.

Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.

Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.

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

Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think.

Whatever your life’s work, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.

Have a wonderful week ExpressIRSForms readers! For more of your regularly scheduled 1099, W-2, and ACA related blogs, tune back Wednesday. In the meantime, if you need any help with your e-filing, we’re here Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. by phone (704-839-2270) and live chat. We’ve also still got 24/7 email support going at
