Since I am observing Dr. King’s birthday, I thought I would share a few of his quotes.

  1. There is nothing more tragic than to find an individual bogged down in the length of life, devoid of breadth.
  2. An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.
  3. When you are right you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative.
  4. The major problem of life is learning how to handle the costly interruptions.
  5. Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
  6. There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love.
  7. Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.
  8. Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic.
  9. Pity may represent little more than the impersonal concern which prompts the mailing of a check, but true sympathy is the personal concern which demands the giving of one’s soul.

Tomorrow I will share some thoughts on discovering your life purpose. Until then, stay safe, and keep the faith.
