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.
“When the gods wish to punish us they answer our prayers.”
“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right temporarily defeated is stronger than evil triumphant.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Imagine a world in which we replace the phrase “politically correct” wherever we can with “treating other people with respect.”
“Telling it like it is”
doesn’t describe the world.
It reveals you.
Somewhere between “We choose to go to the moon” and “If you see something, say something” we traded all of our hope for fear.
Worry is an abuse of the imagination.
Cease to do evil,
Learn to do good;
Reprove the ruthless,
Defend the orphan,
Plead for the widow.
He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.
