Home Spun comic strip #47
Today we celebrate and remember the contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I copied some quotes below. You can find more at the Brainy Quote site.
-Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.
-Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'
-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.
-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.
-Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
