Sweep Streets Like Shakespeare Wrote Poetry

Happy Martin Luther King Day, everyone.  It’s not quite as famous as the “Dream” speech, but here’s the good Dr. King name dropping our favorite playwright to make his point:

What I’m saying to you this morning my friends, even if it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, go on 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.”
