Demanding more from ourselves

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Fittingly, I end with some MLK quotes and ask you to think about and act upon what he and others have said; and then demand from yourself the internal fortitude to stand against the “wiles of the devil” by doing the right things for the right reasons—all the time.

“History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.”

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”

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

“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”

Amen, Brother Martin, that sure is right!
