A Celebration for Dr. King

Today is a belated birthday celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I even hired a couple cardinals to sing for him.

There are so many excellent quotes on BrainyQuote.com that I had a hard time choosing which one to post, so I choose several. May at least one speak to your heart today.

The quality, not the longevity, of one’s life is what is important.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

If a man has not discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.

Martin Luther King Jr.

Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

A man dies when he refuses to stand up for that which is right. A man dies when he refuses to stand up for justice. A man dies when he refuses to take a stand for that which is true.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Weekend Wisdom: Permanent Peace

More wise words from Martin Luther King Jr.

Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. I am not unmindful of the fact that violence often brings about momentary results. Nations have frequently won their independence in battle. But in spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace.

Martin Luther King Jr.

Permanent peace is not possible until God sends Jesus back to set this world right. For as long as there are at least 2 humans on earth, there will always be unrest – in my opinion.

God Bless You

God Bless America

Weekend Wisdom for Labor Day

Work is no disgrace; the disgrace is idleness.

– Greek Proverb
All wealth is the product of labor.

– John Locke

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.

– Martin Luther King Jr.
It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.
– Theodore Roosevelt
Before the reward there must be labor. You plant before you harvest. You sow in tears before you reap joy.
– Ralph Ransom
Wishing you a joyful extra day of rest.
Michele
