Since I am observing Dr. King’s birthday, I thought I would share a few of his quotes.
- There is nothing more tragic than to find an individual bogged down in the length of life, devoid of breadth.
- 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.
- When you are right you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative.
- The major problem of life is learning how to handle the costly interruptions.
- Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
- There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love.
- Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.
- Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic.
- 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.
